lyrics

My grandpa could make anything,
So it seems at ten years old.
We made plans to build so many things,
So ambitious, so bold.

Summer after summer,
Plan after plan,
I had no idea
we were building a man.

Summer after summer,
Plan after plan,
Now it’s plain to see,
We were building me.

My father taught me patiently
When to work and when to play.
We don’t stop until the work is through,
And when we’re through, we’re on our way.

Weekend after weekend,
Plan after plan,
I had no idea
we were building a man.

Weekend after weekend,
Plan after plan,
Now it’s plain to see,
We were building me.

Now the man that they were building
Is moving on with life.
Building cribs and beds and strollers,
Fixing toys and bikes and life.

Day after day,
Child after child,
I hope that I’m building
Three new lives.

But day after day,
Child after child
Now it’s plain to see,
They were building me.
