GARY ALLAN


Tough Little Boys Lyrics

Well I never once, backed down from a punch
Well I'd take it square on the chin
And I found out fast a bully's just that
And you've got to stand up to him

So I didn't cry when I got a black eye
As bad as it hurt I just grinned
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into be babies again

Scared me to death, when you took your first steps
Well I'd fall every time you fell down
And your first day of school, I cried like a fool, and
I followed your school bus to town

Well I didn't cry when old yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into be babies again

Well I'm a grown man but as strong as I am
Well sometimes it's hard to believe
How one little girl with little blond curls
Can totally terrify me

If you were to ask my wife would just laugh
She'd say, "I know all about men"
And how tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into be babies again

Well I know one day I'll give you away
And I'm gonna stand there and smile
But when I get home and I'm all alone
Well I'll sit in your room for a while

Well I didn't cry when old yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into be babies again
When tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into be babies again
