Watching You

Rodney Atkins

 DGDD
VERSE I:
 D
 Drivin' through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
 BbCD
Knowin' that he couldn't have the toy ‘til his nuggets were gone.                      
 D
 A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my brakes and mumbled under my breath.
 BbCD
His fries went a flyin',  and his orange drink covered his lap                 
 GA
Well, then my 4 year old said a four letter word
 GAG
It started with S and I was concerned
 A
So I said, son, now where'd you learn to talk like that

CHORUS:
 D
He said,  I've been watching you, dad ain't that cool
 A
I'm your buckaroo, I want to be like you
 GA
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
 D
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
 A
Yeah, we're just alike, hey, ain't we dad
 GAG/BAGA
want to do everything you do        
 D
So I've been watching you

 D-G
VERSE II:
 D
 We got back home and I went to the barn
I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
 BbCD
 Said, lord, please help me help my stupid self
 D
 Just this side of bedtime later that night
Turnin' on my son's Scooby-doo nightlight
 BbCD
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
 GA
He closed his little eyes,  folded his little hands
 G/BAG
Spoke to god like he was talkin' to a friend
 A
And I said, son, now where'd you learn to pray like that

CHORUS:
 D
He said, I've been watching you, dad ain't that cool
 A
I'm your buckaroo;  I want to be like you
 GA
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
 D
We like fixin' things and holding momma's hand
 A
Yeah, we're just alike, hey,  ain't we dad
 GAG/BAGA
I want to do everything you do;       
 D
so I've been watching you

 GA
With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug
 G/BAG
Said, my little bear is growin' up
 GA
And he said,  but when I'm big I'll still know what to do

CHORUS:
 D
‘cause I've been watching you,  dad ain't that cool
 A
I'm your buckaroo'  I want to be like you
 GA
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
 D
By then I'll be strong as superman
 A
We'll be just alike, hey, won't we dad
 GAG/BAGA
When I can do everything you do        
 D
‘cause I've been watchin' you
