John Caleb is a Big Boy

John Caleb with his pre-school backpack
John loves his pre-school backpack

Three-year birthdays mean fun balloons
Eating cereal with colored spoons
And drinking milk without a straw
You are a big boy now

You wake up early by yourself
And sneak off goldfish from the shelf
And turn on Barney with a shout
You are a big boy now

At the end of songs you shout “hooray!”
You say, “rejoice!”, this is the day
The Lord made it, let us be glad
You are a big boy now

Sometimes you disobey your dad
Correcting you, it makes me sad
But I’m proud of you
You are a big boy now

You taught your sister to hit a ball
You show concern when someone falls
Your heart is tender-sweet
You are a big boy now

So much you do now on your own
Our favorite shirts you’ve all outgrown
It’s time to buy new shoes
You are a big boy now

In the morning you begin pre-school
Tonight I’m feeling like a fool
For letting time go by so fast
You are a big boy now
