The doctors say you're okay
But I know you're not
They think they know more because
They went to med school
But I know the way you like your cereal
How you like to eat it watching Nick at Nite
The way the milk used to dribble down your chin
And I'd call you a slob
But really, I thought it was cute
Let's take a spin
Because you don't look right in that hospital bed
We were meant to laugh 'til we cry
And I never cry 'til I laugh
When I'm looking at you like that
I just cry
If you know the secrets to life when you're a baby
I wonder if you knew you'd been *** over
That I'd sob in traffic
Bite my pillow at night
So I didn't in front of you
