Drivin’ through town just my boy and me
With a 'Happy Meal' in his booster seat
Knowin’ that he couldn’t have the toy ‘til his nuggets were gone

A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit in my brakes and mumbled under my breath
His fries went a flyin’ and his orange drink covered his lap

Well, then my 4 year old said a 4 letter word
It started with 'S' and I was concerned
So I said, “Son, now where’d you learn to talk like that?”

He said, “I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool?
I’m your buckaroo, I want to be like you
And 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 want to do everything you do
So 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”

Just 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’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool?
I’m your buckaroo, I want to be like you
And eat all my food, and grow as tall as you are"

"We like fixin’ things and holding moma’s hand
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey, ain’t we dad?
I want to do everything you do
So I’ve been watching 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’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool?
I’m your buckaroo, I want to be like you
And eat all my food, and grow as tall as you are"

"By 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’ve been watching you"

Hey, hey, oh, oh
