It was pouring rain on a Saturday
And kid brother ran through the door
He’d just turned five years old and he wore his own
Mini-football outfit from the toy store

He’d been watchin’ TV - but his favorite team
Had taken a loss on the football field
Saw his heroes fall, started crying and all
I couldn’t figure out the big deal
But I said

Hey Little Man
Don’t cry little man
You don’t have to worry about these things
Your world won’t be lost cuz of your sad feelings
Hey Little Man
It’s all in the plan
And tears will not bring any harm
But for now you’ll be safe in my arms
My Little Man

It was Friday night, and I saw a light
From kid brother’s room up ahead
He’d just turned ten years old - and he wore his own
Pee-wee football outfit even to bed

He was down on his knees – and he prayed for his team
And maybe just once – he would carry the ball
He started to cry, left me wondering why
I didn’t understand it at all
I whispered

Hey Little Man
Don’t cry Little Man
You don’t have to worry about these things
The game won’t be lost cuz you’ve got these feelings
Hey Little Man
It’s all in the plan
Let your pray’rs and dreams fill your head
Til then you’ll be safe in this bed
My Little Man

It was pouring rain on a Saturday
And kid brother came round to me
He’d just turned eighteen years old and he wore his own
High school football outfit from the town league

He was recruited and seen by his favorite team
I’m sure they could see the fire in his eyes
But he started to cry when he told me goodbye
I didn’t even understand why
And I thought

Hey Little Man
Don’t cry Little Man
You don’t have to worry about these things
The world can be yours if you keep believin’
Hey Little Man
Just follow His Plan
And pray for the life of your dreams
Little brother you always will be
My Little Man

It was pouring rain on a Saturday
And kid brother was there on TV
He’d just turned twenty years old and he wore his own
Real football outfit from the big leagues

He’s now living the dream - with his favorite team
And Dad and I cheer when he runs with the ball
When he scores with a smile - he looks up to the sky
I’m finally understanding it all
And I say

Hey Little Man
You’re now a big man
You no longer worry about these things
The world now is yours cuz you lived believin’
Hey Little Man
Your prayer will stand
And your fifteen-year dream is at hand
Now a boy has the life that he planned
My Little Man

Now a boy has the life that he planned
My Little Man
