The Statler Brothers - Boy Inside Of Me lyrics

When I was just a kid I used to wonder all the time
I had imagination and a very active mind
I played a game called "Wonder If" and one called "Let's Pretend"
I had a pirate's treasure, and a fortress to defend.

I made frequent visits to Venus and the Moon
I could be George Washington, John Wayne, or Daniel Boone
I never feared for anything for I could always be
Any man I wanted through the boy inside of me

I had a stack of baseball cards, and I had chicken pox
I had red bicycle, a frog, and smelly socks
I had a praying mantis, that I kept in a jar
I had a dog named Freckles, got run over by a car

And I could be Dick Tracy, in my Daddy's Sunday hat,
I was Joe Palooks, I was this and that
I never feared for anything for I could always be
Any man I wanted through the boy inside of me

Things slowly fell together. I grew into a man.
I learned to live with politics and tie of foreign hands.
I've taken on a family and payin' for a home
And live life so my son can have a hero of his own.

And sometimes when this hero is required to show his stuff,
He just calls on the stuff he learned while he was growin' up.
So this hero owes it all, though humble it may be,
The man I am resulted from the boy inside of me.

The man I am resulted from the boy inside of me.
