There are little eyes upon you, and they're watching night and day;

There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say;

There are little hands all eager to do everything      you do,

And a little boy who's dreaming of the day he'll      be like you.

You're the little fellow's idol, you're the wisest        of the wise;

In his little mind about you no suspicions ever       rise;

He believes in you devoutly, holds that all you        say and do

He will say and do in your way when he's               grown up like you.

There's a wide-eyed little fellow who believes         you're always right,

And his ears are always open and he watches        day and night,

You are setting an example every day in all           you do,

For the little boy who's waiting to grow up to be  like you.
