"I love you." I say to you.
While the words out of your mouth come out as
"I love you too Bubba."
Bubba as in bubblegum.
Because when you first saw I was chewing pink bubblegum.
I laugh and pick you up.
Saturday night comd and you come at 3am, while I'm half asleep.
Complaining about having another nightmare.
I half smile and hold you tight around me,
Promising the monsters won't come.
"I love you baby boy." I whisper to you.
The first day of school comes around,
I lead you to the big building.
When the day ends you tell me a girl chased you around.
I laugh and say she just likes you.
Time goes by
You start cycling to school,
You no longer call me Bubba,
You no longer come in my room for nightmares.
I miss you baby boy.
You grew up too fast
Be my baby boy again.
More time goes by
I no longer call you baby boy
You now have girls
You now have girls and calls.
You now have drugs.
What happened to my baby boy?
You were such a fool baby boy
To believe you were doing good.
Now you're six feet underground.
Baby boy, oh baby boy I weep
Where are you baby boy?
What happened baby boy?
I am such a fool to let go baby boy.
I'm sorry baby boy
Baby boy.....My dear and joy
