Elder Brother


  • Elder brother elder brother
    Must let go the meal for the younger
    Elder brother elder brother
    So difficult being a leader
    Elder brother elder brother
    You scared but pretending
    Elder brother elder brother
    You never admit till you’re loser
    Elder brother elder brother
    Killing himself with pride
    Elder brother elder brother
    Must speak less to gain power
    Elder brother elder brother
    Now bored but acts not bothered
    Elder brother elder brother
    Does not know but has to say
    Elder brother elder brother
    Limited to steps and smile
    Elder brother elder brother
    Must deadly live up to expectation
    God please provide a special place
    For the elder ones to fool their selves
    At least, for once in their lives.
