Album
Name of Song: You owe me a favor

A custom so old,
It never came from a mind,
A gentleman’s agreement
that predates our time.

Like spendable money,
A bartering exchange,
Favors between friends
ride above normal range.

Chorus
Knowing its value,
that you always can say,
“You owe me a favor
that I need right away”.
Like spendable money,
A mutual trust,
You owe me that favor
and there’s never a fuss.

Mutual trust,
How long will it last,
Encouraged betrayals
buries trust in your past.
Your word is your bond,
It’s the way of the past,
Let’s make it stick
so trust always lasts.

Keeping your word,
As it was from the past,

Respecting your favors
if you said “I owe you”.
People will always
want to be around you.
