Lyrics

Little King

Written By: Andrew Healey

I’m not straight up and down
I could mess you around
But I only do what I do
Because I want the best for you

I keep you safe in the park
I slay the beast in the dark
I wait to hear you when you call
I raise you up above it all

Hey little king, when you get tall
Don’t forget who I am
Mmm little thing, while you’re still small
I’ll do the best that I can

Life is one rocky road
It’s easy to lose your load
Hold on tight, don’t look back
It’ll give you a heart attack

Well I’m good, I’m bad
I make you happy, make you mad
I try to teach you right and wrong
I build you up so you’ll be strong

Hey little king, when you get tall
Don’t forget who I am
Mmm little thing, while you’re still small
I’ll do the best that I can

The best that I can is all I can do
I’ll do my best to make it through
I’m just one man, with just one plan
And I’ll use both hands
I promise you

Hey little king, when you get tall
Don’t forget who I am
Mmm little thing, while you’re still small
I’ll do the best that I can
