Be The Man (I want you to be)

When you smile, I see my smile

When you laugh, I hear my laugh

I hear my East Texas drawl when you say 'Bye Bye'

We both look at your mom with the same twinkle in our eye

Is it a blessing, is it a curse?

It's a responsibility

And I want to be the man I want you to be

I want to be the man I want you to be

My dad was 10' tall when I was a kid

I emulated everything that he did

I'm thankful for the example that he set for me

Because he was the man I wanted to be

Is it a blessing, is it a curse?

It's a responsibility

And I want to be the man I want you to be

I want to be the man I want you to be

I want to teach you how to fly

I want to teach you how to fall

So we can both stand 10' tall

A perfect example was sent from above

He gave us His life to teach about love

I want to live my life so when you look at me

He is the man that you see

Is it a blessing, is it a curse?

It's a responsibility

And I want to be the man I want you to be

I want to be the man I want you to be

Lord help me be the man You want me to be
