Artist Name- Rodney Atkins
Song lyrics- Watching you


Drivin' through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Knowin' that he couldn't have the toy
Till his nuggets were gone

A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my breaks
And mumbled under my breath
His fries went fryin' [corrected]
And his orange drink covered his lap

Well then my four year old said a four letter word
It started with S
And I was concerned
So I said son
Where'd you learn to talk like that

He said I'd been watchin' 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 got cowboy boots
And camo pants
We're just alike
Now ain't we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I been watchin' 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
Turnin' on my son's scooby doo night light
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
He closed his little eyes
Folded his little hands
Spoke to God like he was talkin' to a friend
And I said son,
Now where'd you learn to pray like that

He said I'd been watchin' 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 fixin' things
And holdin' mama's hand
We're just alike
Now ain't we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I been watchin' you

With tears in my eyes
I wrapped him in a hug
Said my little bear is growin' up
And he said but when I'm big
I'll still know what to do

Cause I been watchin 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 got cowboy boots
And camel pants
We're just alike
Now ain't we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I been watchin' you

Then I'll be strong as superman
We'll be just alike
Hey won't we dad
When I can do everything you do
Cause I been watchin' you

Hey yeah
Uh huh

Note: Thanks to Jason for helping me correct
these. Another special thanks to Tracy, who
helped me correct the rather embarrassing "camel
pants" line. I was wondering what in the heck
those were. Now I know they don't exist.
