Watching You Lyrics - Rodney Atkins

Review The Song (15)

Written By: Rodney Atkins, Steve Dean, Brian White

Driving through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Knowing that he couldn't have the toy
Till his nuggets were gone
A Green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit on my brakes and mumbled under my breath
As fries went a flying and his orange drink covered his lap
Well then my four year old said a four letter word
It started with "s" and I was concerned
So I said son now where'd you learn to talk like that

Chorus one

He said I've been watching you dad, ain't that cool
I'm your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
Yeah we're just alike, hey ain't we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I've been watching you

We got back home and I went to the barn
I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
Said Lord please help me help my stupid self
Then this side of bedtime later that night
Turning on my son's scooby doo nightlight
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
He closed his little eyes, folded his little hands
Spoke to God like he was talking to a friend
And I said son now where'd you learn to pray like that

Chorus two

He said I've been watching you dad, ain't that cool
I'm your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
We like fixing things and holding mama's hand
Yeah we're just alike, hey ain't we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I've been watching you


With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug
Said my little bear is growing up
And he said but when I'm big I'll still know what to do

Chorus three

Cause I've been watching you dad, ain't that cool
I'm your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
Then I'll be as strong as superman
We'll be just alike, hey won't we dad
When I can do everything you do

Because I've been watching you
Hey yeah.. uh huh

a girls hero's this song was dedicated to her dad n gramps... | Reviewer: dumbbroad | 1/7/11

I have a hearing problem so when I finally found these lyrics to this song I cried as I read it.
My 13 year old granddaughter has had a tough time lately, but she and her daddy are close, very close.
a while back she emailed me and told me to have her gramps listen to this song. She dedicated it to him and her daddy, they are her hero's because they are such strong loving men...
reduced to tears by a thirteen year old girl child, gotta love it
Thank You Rodney, you have NO IDEA how you touch peoples hearts...

This song is a tear jerker... I am dating a guy who HATES country and I finally got him to listen to this song... He actually liked this song. I have 2 kids, who he is great with *they arent his* and when he heard this song, I think it actually touched him... cuz my kids both look up to him so much! This is by far the best song ever! Its my fav!

Sad.... | Reviewer: Cortney | 10/17/07

Sadly I have a son who's father left him and everytime i hear this song I get so emotional. It is such a touching song and knowing how important a father is to a young boy just kills me. As much as i wish his father was here sometimes i just act like this song is written for mothers and then its our song...

My Review of Watching You by Rodney Atkins | Reviewer: Touched | 7/1/07

I love this song. It reminds me of a little boy who's mother died and it's just him and his dad. He's four years old and this little boy wants to do everything like his dad. His dad is his role model. This song has touched me deeply because the boy I know is like a brother to me and the song portrays him and his dad very well.
I love this song and I thank the writers of this song for coming up with such a touching song.

beautiful song.. | Reviewer: Nicole | 6/27/07

This song is amazing... my boyfriend and I found out we were pregnant but we couldn't handle a baby at this point and we were talking about having an abortion, and this song came on the radio, and at the end i looked at him and tears were streaming down his face, then he looked at me a couple minutes after the song was over and i had tears in my eyes and he was like "what's wrong?" and i said "that song" and he was just like "i know..." But anyway we decided to have the baby, but ended up having a miscarriage because God knew we couldn't handle a baby yet, but now we know that we are going to have kids someday. He would be a great father and we both have two angel twins in Heaven watching over us!

Props | Reviewer: Hanes | 5/23/07

This song is awesome. My 3 yr old is always saying that he wants to be like me. He always does everything i do, including mowing the yard. He told me that when he gets bigger, he wants to go to Iraq to fight the bad people like Daddy does.
