Song Description

a swing tune celebrating how we have watched the child grow over the years

Story Behind the Song

our youngest child wanted a song written about him.


1. when you were first born, we were all so proud

a tiny little thing, but you could yell out so loud

Every thing you did was a miracle it seemed,

and lately I've been wishing we could have those days again

please please please please, don't grow up

2. then you were a child going off to school

we were so worried about what you might get into

All those nasty kids leading you astray

I was amazed when things turned out Ok

please please please please, don't grow up


Well, it must have been your mother's love that guided you so good

When it seemed like there was no way to protect you from the world

there's challenges ahead but I know you've got the mind

just remember what your mother taught you, things will work out fine.

3. Now you're almost grown, so here's a word or two

I hope you chase your dream, wherever that may take you

life is way too short to worry about mistakes

so have some fun and help to make this world a better place

please please please please, don't grow up

please please please please, stay out of trouble

please please please please, don't get arrested

please please please please, how about a phone call?

please please please please, don't grow up
