GOT A CALL FROM THE PRINCIPAL,
SAID "LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR SON.
TOOK SOME PAINT FROM THE JANITOR'S ROOM,
DON'T HAVE TO GUESS WHAT HE'S DONE.
EXPRESSED HIMSELF ON THE BOY'S ROOM WALL,
BACK IN DETENTION, NOW YOU'RE GETTING THIS CALL."

(chorus)
MY MIND DRIFTS BACK TO WHEN I WAS HIS AGE.
DAD GOT THOSE CALLS, NOW WE'RE ON THE SAME PAGE.
HIDING OUT IN THE BASKETBALL GYM,
SMOKING CIGARETTES WITH MY BEST FRIEND TIM.
DADDY LAUGHED NOW HE'S ME WHEN I WAS HIM.

PLAYIN' DRUMS AND LOVES TO ROCK,
HE'S A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK.
THE GIRLS COME TO SEE HIS BAND,
MY LITTLE BOY'S NOW A MUSIC MAN.
WORKING HARD, WON'T BE LONG AT ALL,
GOLD RECORDS WILL BE ON HIS WALL.

(chorus)
MY MIND DRIFTS BACK TO WHEN I WAS HIS AGE,
DAD GOT THOSE CALLS, NOW WE'RE ON THE SAME PAGE.
PLAYING GIGS IN THE BASKETBALL GYM,
JAMMING ON SONGS WITH HIS BEST FRIEND TIM.
DADDY LAUGHED NOW HE'S ME WHEN I WAS HIM.

(Bridge)
STANDING WITH HIS BRAND NEW BRIDE,
MY SON SAYS HIS "I DO'S".
DADDY LEANS TO ME AND SAYS,
"MAN, HE'S JUST LIKE YOU."
"MAN, HE'S JUST LIKE YOU."

(chorus)
MY MIND DRIFTS BACK TO WHEN I WAS HIS AGE,
DAD GOT THOSE CALLS, NOW WE'RE ON THE SAME PAGE.
DANCING WITH HIS BRIDE AT THE HOLIDAY INN,
GETTING A TOAST FROM HIS BEST MAN TIM.
DADDY LAUGHED NOW HE'S ME WHEN I WAS HIM.

(repeat last chorus)
