An eighteen year old boy in an army tent. 1945 he met his bride. A little baby girl, another child on the way. Lost a son in Vietnam but you never heard him curse the lords name.

82 years he never complained, never had a bad word to say. A regular guy getting by. Resting on the laurels, resting on the laurels resting on the laurels of love.

He set out to rule the world, down on William Street. Selling sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. He took her to Hawaii, it was 1985. Pina Colodas on the beach, gray haired love birds Wiakiki.

82 years he never complained, kept on marching through the rain, a regular guy getting by. Resting on the laurels of a life well spent with Grandma sitting right there by his side.

Resting on the laurels, Resting on the laurels, Resting on the laurels of love.

a regular guy getting by
