"Kid on my Shoulders" as written by and Matthew Prescott Clark Adam Kent Russell....
Round up the cables and
take off the caps
It's a woman

Helping on calling the shots
Then hit the ground running

I said, "Boy, where are you hiding?"

He'll set at sixes and sevens
And let the mind wander

Laugh off the stakes and
let us lead the race
then it's over

I said "Boy, where are you hiding?"
I said, "Boy. . . "
Well, he was the kid on my shoulders

Stand in the back of the room
Say, "Man, why you teasin'?

'Cause if you just made one stylish attempt,
You'd be convincing"

I'd just say 'Boy! where are you hiding?'
I'd say, 'Boy. . .'

Now you were the kid on my shoulders
Just wait until we get older

We held our tongues throughout it
One day we'll laugh about it

    General Commentnot very certain, but i think the missing line goes something like this:

    "you sat at sixes and sevens"

    General CommentOk, I hope someone corrects me. I THINK this song is about a guy and his boys trying to get his friend to meet a girl. They even go talk to her but his friend however plays the shy role and disappears. That's why the Rabbits ask...'Boy, where are you hidin?'

    My InterpretationI believe the missing line is 'He'll set at sixes and sevens'. This is alluding to the fact that the 'friend' in question with whom they're attempting to hook up with this woman is 'at odds, or unsure of' the current situation:
