I would like to thank Another At-Home Dad for posting this video on his blog so I could see it. What a great song by Ben Folds. Here is the video and the lyrics...



"still fighting it"
ben folds

good morning son
i am a bird
wearing a brown polyester shirt
you want a coke?
maybe some fries?
the roast beef combo's only nine ninety five
but it's okay
you don't have to pay
i've got all the change

everybody knows
it hurts to grow up
but everybody does
it's so weird to be back here
let me tell you what
the years go on
and we're still fighting it
and you're so much like me
i'm sorry

good morning son
twenty years from now
maybe we'll both sit down
and have a few beers
and i can tell you
about today
and how i picked you up
and everything changed

it was pain
sunny days and rain
i knew you'd feel the same things

everybody knows
it sucks to grow up
and everybody does
and so weird to be back here
let me tell you what
the years go on
and we're still fighting it

you'll try and try
and one day
you'll fly away from me

it was pain
sunny days and rain
i knew you'd feel the same things

everybody knows
it hurts to grow up
and everybody does
and so weird to be back here

let me tell you what
the years go on
and we're still fighting it
and you're so much like me
i'm sorry

That damn whit. He get's Everywhere before me.

it is a great song. Try Gracey by the same artist - it's about his daughter and it's wonderful
