ALL ATHLETES, YOUNG OR OLD, SHOULD REMEMBER….
There are little eyes upon you
And they're watching night and day
There are little ears that quickly
Take in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager
To do anything you do;
There's a little boy who's dreaming
Of the day he'll be like you.
You're the little fellow's idol;
You're the wisest of the wise,
In his little mind about you,
No suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do,
He will say and do, in your way
When he's a grown-up like you.
There's a wide-eyed little fellow,
Who believes you're always right,
And his ears are always open,
As he watches day and night;
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do,
For the little boy who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.
