The 100% Boy Blues

Watching Dolphin Tale while he's home from school sick

My son’s best lookin’ eight-year-old in town
Lord, my son’s best lookin’ eight-year-old in town
And he still looks good when he’s feelin’ down

Oh, he’s a sheep; my son’s a sheep like me
Oh, he’s a sheep; my son’s a sheep like me
We were born the same, creative and dreamy

A drive of passion steers him through the day
Yes, a drive of passion steers him through the day
And when his mind’s made up ain’t nothin’ make him sway

My son, he’s every bit a boy
Oh, my son, he’s every bit a boy
A HUN-derd-per-cent-boy, my son’s a joy

That adorable! I've used both prompts in a poem as well, but you rhyme far better than I do. <3

Kisses dear!
