Watching Scotty Grow
Mac Davis Lyrics

There he sits with a pen and a yellow pad
What a handsome lad
That's my boy
BRLFQ spells mom and dad

But that ain't too bad
That's my boy
You can have your TV and you nightclubs
And you can have your drive in picture show
I'll stay here with my little man near
We'll listen to the radio
Biding my time and
Watching Scotty grow

Making a castle out of building blocks
And a cardboard box
That's my boy
Mickey Mouse says it's thirteen o'clock

Well that's quite a shock!
That's my boy
In four short years
I've gone from rags to riches

And what I did before that I don't know
So let it rain on my windowpane
I got my own rainbow
And we're sitting here shining

Watching Scotty grow
Riding on daddy's shoulders off to bed
Old sleepy head
That's my boy

Got to have a drink of water and a story read
A teddy bear named Fred
That's my boy
What's that you say momma

Come on and keep you feet warm
Well save me a place
I'll be there in a minute or so
I'll think I'll stay right here and

Say a little prayer before I go
Me and God
Watching Scotty grow
Me and God

Watching Scotty grow

VERY SAD day in the music industry

Rip Mac. From a hugh Muscle Shoals fan. You will be missed...

Frank Guertin

Although we truly miss that great man's departure, he's enriching paradise with his person I think, in the "place" beyond the "veil". We gotta believe it...


Well said...I believe he's in a better world now.

Rest in peace Mac Davis, you will be missed

I sang this to my three children when they were young substituting their names. My oldest and I danced to this song on her wedding day.  Such memories.

Jessie Myrle
