So much depends upon

So much depends upon where you are at.
So much depends upon where you want to go.
Sometimes it depends upon a tractor,
a lot of snow and people who know
that so much depends upon your ability to have fun!


You gotta laugh, because you know,
so much of what crazy idea he has next
depends upon what kind of audience you are.

A perfect slope, a smooth run and a wonderful day
depends upon this man's skill behind the wheel
of that big red tractor and the heart size he is.

So much of what we do depends upon one single thing.
Making memories with him, basking in his joy.
Seeing his face and hearing the laughter that shouts,
"This is the best day ever!"



So much depends upon making the time.
Knowing the most important things
are not things at all.
So much depends upon knowing this.
Everything depends upon this.
