He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you dad...
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home dad?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw", I said, "Not today
I got a lot to do", he said, "That's OK"
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
So much like a man I just had to say
"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and said with a smile
"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later...
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu...
