Very First Day

Good morning son
Welcome to your brand new home
You were sleeping
when we brought you here last night

What are you thinking?
as you look around your room
one things for certain
you'll be growin up too soon

It's a brand new day
In a brand new life
You're a miracle
Like your mom, my wife
So peacefully you lay
On your very first day

Good morning son
We're gonna have so much fun
I can't wait for all the good times we will share

Right now I'm content to watch you
Open up your eyes
Hold you close and keep you safe
So you won't have to cry


It's the greatest thing I do
Spending time and teaching you
Try to catch you when you fall
Show you that you can have it all

Good morning son
Welcome to your brand new home
We've been watching you
since you came home last night

Your growin' up already
Hope I never miss a day
Seeing you become a man
And have a chance to say


You're very first day
So peacefully
On you're very first day
