Here's a mother's affections to her son while in the U.S. Marine Corps 12 week bootcamp. In all honesty as with my other songs, I wrote it for myself. My son likes dance music so we added some beats to it.

Lyrics

WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE (bootcamp)©2016 Lezlee Monroe
Once there was a little boy
God gave to me and yes, you were mine
The grandson of a serviceman
In a patriotic family line
You played with Tonka tanks and GI Joes
And said I wanna be a soldier too
The only heroes that you chose
Would say this is just what I do
How I loved you as you grew

YOU ARE YOUR MAMA’S BOY
THE TWINKLE IN MY EYE
I LOVE HOW JUST THE THOUGHT OF YOU
CAN LIGHT UP MY WORLD
WHEN YOU’RE OUT THERE ALL ALONE
AND YA THINK YOUR CHANCE IS BLOWN
REMEMBER YOU KNOW HOW TA GET THERE
IN THE GROOVE OR ON THE MOVE
I’LL LOVE YOU WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE

You took the Oath then took the flight
To where The Few, The Proud have gone before
It was a leap of faith, but the time was right
To ride the edge into the core
You learned to take the heat while keeping cool
With your newfound brothers right in it too
And when you said yes to this recruit
The courage of your heart broke through
And baby you did too, like I knew you’d do

YOU ARE YOUR MAMA’S BOY
THE TWINKLE IN MY EYE
I LOVE HOW JUST THE THOUGHT OF YOU
CAN LIGHT UP MY WORLD
WHEN YOU’RE OUT THERE ALL ALONE
WHERE IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE HOME
REMEMBER YOU KNOW HOW TA GET THERE
FROM HERE IN VIEW TO TIMBUKTU
I’LL LOVE YOU WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE
WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE

The morning’s broken
And you’ve found some new pieces
Brilliant shards of who you are
Hey, ya gotta see this

MAMA’S BOY, THE TWINKLE IN MY EYE
I LOVE HOW JUST THE THOUGHT OF YOU
CAN LIGHT UP MY WORLD
WHEN YOU’RE OUT THERE ALL ALONE
AND YOU’RE STANDING ON YOUR OWN
REMEMBER YOU KNEW HOW TO GET THERE
HOW TA GET THERE
HOW TA GET THERE

CAMMIES OR BLUES
MY HEART’S WITH YOU
FAMILY TOO, LOVES YOU
WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE
WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE
WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE WHEN YOU’RE ANYWHERE
