"More Like My Daddy Than Me" as written by and Don S. Reid....
I just spent an unusual evening
At a banquet that still won't digest
Watching this years high school heroes
Get awarded for what they do best

There's a letter for the one that jumped highest
And one ran faster by far
One broke the 200 meters
And one broke her arm on the bar

The baseball team took the honors
The MDP stole the show
The coach looked scared with the tie on
Swore, next year they'd be 15 and old

And in tomorrow mornings newspaper
There'll be pictures that surely reveal
Young men looking strange with no caps on
And Tomboys in dresses and heels

And I've stood up there where they're standing
And never once thought I would be
Sitting down here where I'm sitting
Looking more like my Daddy than me
Looking more like my Daddy than me

Twenty some years from tomorrow
These same boys and girls will find
An old fading newspaper clipping
Yellow and torn up with time

Their daughters and sons will be standing
Up there where they used to be
And only then will they know what I'm feeling
When they're sitting out here with me

And I've stood up there where they're standing
Behind the MDP
But it's late, I'm tired and still hungry
Acting more like my Daddy than me
I'm getting more like my Daddy than me
