Watching Trevor Grow - Poem by Matt Matherne

There he sits with a pen and a yellow pad
What a handsome lad
That's our boy
BRLFQ spells mom and dad
But that ain't too bad
That's our boy
You can have your TV and you nightclubs
And you can have your drive in picture show
We'll stay here with our little man near
We'll listen to the radio
Biding our time and
Watching Trevor grow
Making a castle out of building blocks
And a cardboard box
That's our boy
Mickey Mouse says it's thirteen o'clock
Well that's quite a shock!
That's our boy
In almost two short years
We've gone from rags to riches
And what we did before that I don't know
So let it rain on my windowpane
We got our own rainbow
And we're sitting here shining
Watching Trevor grow
Riding on daddy's shoulders off to bed
Old sleepy head
That's our boy
Got to have a drink of water and a story read
A teddy bear named Fred
That's our boy
What's that you say momma
Come on and keep you feet warm
Well save me a place
I'll be there in a minute or so
I'll think I'll stay right here and
Say a little prayer before I go
Me and God
Watching Trevor grow
Me and God
Watching Trevor grow...
