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

    Well 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
