"Man of the House" as written by Charles Elliott Wicks and Michael Anthony Mobley....
6 A.M and Bobby's wakin' up
Rolls outta bed with sleepy eyes
Goes to his sister's room across the hall
'Hey Daisy rise and shine'
He pours two bowls of Captain Crunch
Puts a fresh pot of coffee on
He wakes his momma up off the couch
The bus is here we love you mom

He made the breakfast
He did the dishes
So she wouldn't have to

[Chorus]
Oh he's only ten
This comin' of age he ought to be out playin' ball
And video games
Climbin' trees
Or on a bike just ridin' around
But it's hard to be a kid
When you're the man of the house

It's late at night and Larry King is on
Momma's up on the couch again
Bobby hears them all talk about
That awful war his daddy's in
So he runs off, straight up to his room
Don't want his momma to see him right now
He climbs in bed and says a silent prayer
Then he cries his little blue eyes out
Don't wanna let her down

[Chorus]

It's finally Saturday
Bobby gets a phone call
Another world away from home
He says, 'I love you dad'
Daddy says it right back
Wish I could reach through this phone
And hug you, and Daisy, and your mom
I'm so proud of you son.'

[Chorus]

It's 6 A.M and Bobby's wakin' up
Rolls outta bed with sleepy eyes
