  • Sip it slow, kick back and let the cool breeze blow
    Feel the grass up between your toes,
    Take a deep breath for a minute
    Sip it slow, somethin' this good you gotta make last
    If you let it slip by too fast, you going to wish you didn't miss it
    Sip it slow

    How's it son? I was just like you when I was there
    Always in a hurry growin' up I thought it wasn't fair
    Livin' fast like every moment might just be the last
    See it's the future that you really want, who really needs the past
    Makin' somethin' outta nothing that's what life's about
    You keep the devil at your back even when you doubt
    See its your life son turn it up and let it rip
    And don't forget to take a breath and just

    Sip it slow, kick back and let the cool breeze blow
    Feel the grass up between your toes,
    Take a deep breath for a minute
    Sip it slow, somethin' this good you gotta make last
    If you let it slip by too fast, you going to wish you didn't miss it
    Sip it slow

    Son I ain't preachin' I'm just teaching lessons that I've learned
    'Cause I promised God that I would guide ya each and every turn
    You can make a choice and let your voice stand up for right
    Sometimes you turn the other cheek sometimes you gotta fight
    You be a friend to a friend when they need you to
    And I'll stand by ya until the end and help to see it through
    See its your life son turn it up and let it rip
    And don't forget to take a breath and just

    Sip it slow, kick back and let the cool breeze blow
    Feel the grass up between your toes,
    Take a deep breath for a minute
    Sip it slow, somethin' this good you gotta make last
    If you let it slip by too fast, you going to wish you didn't miss it
    Sip it slow

    Thank you dad for giving me what I can give to mine
    A lot of love, a little luck, I'm sure he'll be just fine
    Love the journey of your life son but don't forget
    To take a breath, sit back and just reminisce

    Sip it slow, kick back and let the cool breeze blow
    Feel the grass up between your toes,
    And take a deep breath for a minute
    Sip it slow, somethin' this good you gotta make last
    If you let it slip by too fast, you going to wish you didn't miss it
    Sip it slow

    Kick back and let the cool breeze blow
    Feel the grass up between your toes,
    Take a deep breath for a minute
    Sip it slow, somethin' this good you gotta make last
    If you let it slip by too fast, you wish you didn't miss it
