I've been watching you

I ran across this song by some country artist named Rodney Atkins which is pretty cool. You can hear at http://www.myspace.com/rodneyatkins It made me sorta cry. Real men cry so there! Here are the lyrics:

By: RODNEY ATKINS, STEVE DEAN, BRIAN WHITE
DRIVING THROUGH TOWN JUST MY BOY AND ME
WITH A HAPPY MEAL IN HIS BOOSTER SEAT
KNOWING THAT HE COULDN’T HAVE THE TOY
TILL HIS NUGGETS WERE GONE
GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHT TURNED STRAIGHT TO RED
I HIT MY BRAKES AND MUMBLED UNDER MY BREATH
AS FRIES WENT A FLYING AND HIS ORANGE DRINK COVERED HIS LAP
WELL THEN MY FOUR YEAR OLD SAID A FOUR LETTER WORD
THAT STARTED WITH “S” AND I WAS CONCERNED
SO I SAID SON NOW WHERE DID YOU LEARN TO TALK LIKE THAT
CHORUS ONE
HE SAID I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU DAD, AIN’T THAT COOL
I’M YOUR BUCKAROO, I WANNA BE LIKE YOUAND EAT ALL MY FOOD AND GROW AS TALL AS YOU ARE
WE GOT COWBOY BOOTS AND CAMO PANTS
YEAH WE’RE JUST ALIKE, HEY AIN’T WE DAD
I WANNA DO EVERYTHING YOU DOSO I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU
WE GOT BACK HOME AND I WENT TO THE BARN
I BOWED MY HEAD AND I PRAYED REAL HARD
SAID LORD PLEASE HELP ME HELP MY STUPID SELF
THEN THIS SIDE OF BEDTIME LATER THAT NIGHT
TURNING ON MY SON’S SCOOBY DOO NIGHTLIGHT
HE CRAWLED OUT OF BED AND HE GOT DOWN ON HIS KNEES
HE CLOSED HIS LITTLE EYES, FOLDED HIS LITTLE HANDS
AND SPOKE TO GOD LIKE HE WAS TALKING TO A FRIEND
AND I SAID SON WHERE’D YOU LEARN TO PRAY LIKE THAT
CHORUS TWO
HE SAID I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU DAD, AIN’T THAT COOL
I’M YOUR BUCKAROO, I WANNA BE LIKE YOU
AND EAT ALL MY FOOD AND GROW AS TALL AS YOU ARE
WE LIKE FIXING THINGS AND HOLDING MAMA’S HAND
YEAH WE’RE JUST ALIKE, HEY AIN’T WE DAD
I WANNA DO EVERYTHING YOU DO
SO I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU

BRIDGE
WITH TEARS IN MY EYES I WRAPPED HIM IN A HUG
SAID MY LITTLE BEAR IS GROWING UP
HE SAID BUT WHEN I’M BIG I’LL STILL KNOW WHAT TO DO
CHORUS
THREE CAUSE I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU DAD, AIN’T THAT COOL I’M YOUR BUCKAROO, I WANNA BE LIKE YOU AND EAT ALL MY FOOD AND GROW AS TALL AS YOU ARE
THEN I’LL BE AS STRONG AS YOU AND SUPERMANWE’LL BE JUST ALIKE, HEY WON’T WE DAD
WHEN I CAN DO EVERYTHING YOU DOCAUSE I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU
