"Anything Like Me" - Blake and Carter

So, today I'm parked in front a doctor's office preparing for an important lunch appointment and had switched the CD player off from the book on tape I was listening to to the radio right as they were introducing a new song. For some rare reason, it had my complete attention from the first note and by the last verse... I had tears falling down my cheeks with the saddest and yet the happiest feeling in my stomach. So, with our beloved Blake and "daddy" out of town this week, we wanted him to hear this song and tell him how amazing of a father and husband he is! We miss you!
I pray every day that Carter turns out JUST like you in every single way.

The Lyrics:
I remember saying I don't care either way
Just as long as he or she is healthy I'm ok
Then the doctor pointed to the corner of the screen
And said "You see that thing right there well you know what that means"

And I started wondering who he was going to be
And I thought heaven help us if he's anything like me
He'll probably climb a tree too tall and ride hes bike to fast
End up every summer wearing something in a cast

He's gonna throw a ball and break some glass in a window down the street
He's gonna get in trouble oh he's gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

I can see him right now knees all skinned up
With a magnifying glass trying to melt a Tonka truck
Won't he be a sight with his football helmet on
That'll be his first love til his first love comes along

He'll get his heart broke by the time he's in his teens
And heaven help him if he's anything like me
He'll probably stay out too late and drive his car too fast
Get a speeding ticket he'll pay for mowing grass

He's gonna get caught skipping class and be grounded for a week
He's gonna get in trouble we're gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by I already dread the day
He's gonna hug his momma, he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he cant wait to leave
But as he drives out he'll cry his eyes out

If he's anything like me there's worse folks to be like
Aw he'll be alright if he's anything like me.
