WHAT I WANTED TO BE

When I was just a boy…so innocent and free

a movie star…

or a great athlete…

or a famous singer…

is who I wanted to be.

 

Then I grew up…

and I found love…

or, I wonder, did love find me?

I married and we settled down to raise a family.

 

And I’ve been in some great home movies which we still love to see

all captured for eternity…now on DVD.

 

And I’ve played many sports with my children and grandchildren.

They must have known I had a knack

because whenever we played football…they made me quarterback.

 

And when I sing with my family…around the table or in the car

I don’t have to be on center stage…to feel like a star.

 

Yes, when I was just a boy

a movie star…

or a great athlete…

or a famous singer 

is who I wanted to be…

Little did I know 

when I grew up

 

that I would be all three.
