Hi all I havent posted in quite a while.

Like You
V1
Callused hands, old flannel shirt
He could work from dusk til dawn.
Hot supper waiting for him,
Yet he'd head to the local bar.

V2
He'd weave his way back into the house
After being gone an hour or two.
Pick me up, toss me in the air,
I'd say, 'Daddy I wanna be like you.'

Chorus
Daddy your the strongest man
That I've ever seen.
Even when you come home drunk
And get so loud and mean.
I don't know why you drink that stuff
Then act the way you do,
But daddy don't you forget,
I wanna be like you.

V3
He'd wake up in his favorite chair
Ask for something to eat.
Mom would fix him something
And listen to the words he'd repeat.

V4
I'd sit and watch his every move,
Wonder if he ever knew
As he'd stumble to the bed
I'd still think, I wanna be like you.

Bridge
Funny how a young boy
Learns so much from one man
Even if it's right or wrong,
He still tries to understand.

V5
Well I'm a little older now,
Had some time to think this through.
Daddy I still love you so,
But I don't want to be like you.

Chorus
Daddy your the strongest man
That I've ever seen.
Even when you come home drunk
And get so loud and mean.
I don't know why you drink that stuff
And act the way you do.
But now I have a boy of my own,
And I DON'T want him to be like you.

Repeat Chorus

lyrics belong in songs, poems bolong in bookstores
