Little Big Man

 

Little Big Man

 

When I was just learning about life as a boy so young,
At times, I had experiences that made me shine some.
These were special times as I was growing up in this land.
Allowing my own pride to make me feel like a little big man.

That time I got those brand new Roy Rogers cap guns,
With those two brown holsters from Santa Claus so fun,
I was just brimming with pride as I shot those loud caps
Shooting my sister JerrylDine as she stepped into my trap.

I kept those guns, a hat, and chaps on all through the day,
Shooting all those bad guys in town as I went on my way.
When the day was over, I strapped them on my underwear,
And the little big man slept with his guns close on his rear.

That time I pulled my first baby tooth slamming the door,
I felt just as proud as could be standing there on the floor.
With my tooth there on the end of that string laying there.
My mouth was bleeding and I didn’t cry or have any fear.

I took that little white tooth that I had pulled all by myself,
And put it under my pillow that night like a little boy elf.
While I was asleep at night, the tooth fairy got that tooth,
Again making me a little big man with 50 cents in loot.

That time I rode my 26 inch bicycle down the block alone,
I was beaming with pride as I rode yelling in a loud tone,
“Everybody look at me” so everyone would be sure to see,
That little big man riding down the sidewalk so fast and free.

That time I caught a 4 pound large mouth bass with Dad,
Fishing from a boat with a lazy Ike lure that my Dad had,
Made me so proud that I was just about to bust a gut,
As my fish was as big as the ones the grown men caught.

I was just one of the men as we stopped on the way home,
And the men got a beer as I drank a grape soda all gone.
We all bragged about how hard those big bass fought,
While my little big man was so big like the fish I caught.

That time when I played on that little league baseball team,
I was pitching to a team that has beaten us bad three times.
I was feeling good zipping my fast ball in the first innings,
And I had a no hitter going hoping we would be winning.

.

.

.

.

.
I had two outs with the opposing team heavy hitter at bat.
He had two strikes as my high fast ball flew by his hat,
He swung way under the the pitch and I had my no hitter.
I swelled up so big as that little big man was no quitter.

My Dad was so proud of his little big man that fine day,
That he raved all the way home about my great ball play.
I didn’t sleep at all that night as the little big man bloomed,
My pride was high that night as my thoughts just zoomed.
