Beautiful Boy

Just before Bubba was born we watched the movie Mr. Holland's Opus. I had seen the movie many years ago in a sign language class but Andy had never seen it (the movie is super good and we highly recommend it). At the end of the movie Mr. Holland signs John Lennon's song Beautiful Boy to his son. Andy and I were so touched by the words of this song. Once we brought Bubba home from the hospital we found ourselves singing this song to him. It has since become Bubba's song.

Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy


Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it's getting better and better


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy


Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
'Cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes, it's a long way to go
But in the meantime


Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy


Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it's getting better and better


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Darling, darling, darling
Darling Sean 


*We change the name Sean to Bubba's name
