There he sits with a pen and a yellow pad
What a handsome lad, that's my boy
BRLFQ spells mom and dad
But that ain't too bad, that's my boy

You can have your TV and you nightclubs
And you can have your drive in picture show
I'll stay here with my little man near, we'll listen to the radio
Biding my time and watching Scotty grow

Making a castle out of building blocks
And a cardboard box, that's my boy
Mickey Mouse says it's thirteen O'clock
Well that's quite a shock, that's my boy

In four short years, I've gone from rags to riches
And what I did before that I don't know
So let it rain on my windowpane, I got my own rainbow
And we're sitting here shining, watching Scotty grow

Riding on daddy's shoulders off to bed
Old sleepy head, that's my boy
Got to have a drink of water and a story read
A teddy bear named Fred, that's my boy

What's that you say momma
Come on and keep you feet warm
Well save me a place, I'll be there in a minute or so
I'll think I'll stay right here and say a little prayer before I go

Me and God watching Scotty grow
Me and God watching Scotty grow
