Watching Scotty Grow

When Bobby and I were young parents we would joke and say our new life's entertainment was 'watching Scotty grow', based on the old Bobby Goldsboro song with the same name.

Josh and Susan have now entered that same stage of life and are loving every minute of it.  And grow he is, I can't wait to hear how much he has gained since his last checkup.

Watching Scotty Grow

Lyrics by Mac Davis and sung by Bobby Goldsboro.

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 your 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 your feet warm
Well save me a place
I'll be there in a minute or so
I 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...
