[E] [A] [E] [A]  
He [E]climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
[C#m]He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
With his [B]faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
He [F#m]snuggles up close and says,[B] "I want to be like [E]you"[A]
I [E]tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippin' [C#m]over the toys as I turn out the light
And I [B]whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
[F#m]He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in [B]me
Lord, I want to be [A]just like You[B]
'Cause he wants to be [E]just like me
I want to be a [A]holy ex[B]ample
For his [A]innocent [B]eyes to [E]see
Help me be a [A]living Bible, [B]Lord
That my [C#m]little [B]boy can [A]read
I want to be [F#m]just like You
'Cause [B]he wants to be like [E]me[A]
[F]Got to admit I've got so far to go
Make so [Dm]many mistakes and I'm sure that you know
Some[C]times it seems no matter how hard I try
With [Gm]all the pressures in [C]life I just can't get it all [F]ri[Bb]ght
But I'm [F]trying so hard to learn from the best
Being [Dm]patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness
'Cause I [C]know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
And the [Gm]Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in [C]me
Lord, I want to be [Bb]just like You[C]
'Cause he wants to be [F]just like me
I want to be a [Bb]holy ex[C]ample
For his [Bb]innocent [C]eyes to [F]see
Help me be a [Bb]living Bible, [C]Lord
That my [Dm]little [C]boy can [Bb]read
I want to be [Gm]just like You
'Cause [C]he wants to be like [F]me
[Ab]Right [Bb]now from [Ab]where he [Bb]stands I [Ab]may seem [Bb]mighty [Ab]tall
But it's only 'cause I'm [Bb]learning from the best [C]Father of them [D]all
Lord, I [G]want to be [C]just like You[D]
'Cause he wants to be [G]just like me
I want to be a [C]holy ex[D]ample
For his [C]innocent [D]eyes to [G]see
Help me be a [C]living Bible, [D]Lord
That my [Em]little [D]boy can [C]read
I want to be [Am]just like You
'Cause [D]he wants to be like [G]me
I want to be [Am]just like You
'Cause [D]he wants to be like [G]me
