  • He'll believe that Jesus saves
    He'll always love the Braves
    He's gonna go through that phase where he thinks he knows it all
    Gonna eat, sleep, and breathe in boots
    Probably never gonna own a suit
    Drop everything he's 'bout to do any time his mama calls

    That's my boy
    He's a blue chip straight off the blocker
    Jacked up old truck, Kenwood rocker
    Fist sized dent in a football locker
    Fired up and making noise
    He's a get back up from a life haymaker
    Got your back now, you can get me back later
    I can hear me now in my bleacher, proud southern voice
    "Yeah, that's my boy"

    Gonna break some hearts and break some bones
    Gonna break out on his own
    Find a rear view and get back home just as fast as he can
    Like his old man

    That's my boy
    He's a blue chip straight off the blocker
    Jacked up old truck, Kenwood rocker
    Fist sized dent in a football locker
    Fired up and making noise
    He's a get back up from a life haymaker
    Got your back now, you can get me back later
    I can hear me now in my bleacher, proud southern voice
    "Yeah, that's my boy"

    That's my heart
    That's my soul
    That's my last name
    That's a love like I've never known, yeah, that's my boy

    Yeah, that's my boy
    He's a blue chip straight off the blocker
    Jacked up old truck, Kenwood rocker
    Fist sized dent in a football locker
    Fired up and making noise
    He's a get back up from a life haymaker
    Got your back now, you can get me back later
    I can hear me now in my bleacher, proud southern voice
    "Yeah, that's my boy"

    Yeah, that's my boy
    That's my boy

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
