My wonderful son has a way with the girls –
He’s tough and he’s buff, and he has lots of curls –
He loves to play sports and he’s usually found
Lifting, or batting or golfing a round;
His den is his trophy room – all black and white
A staunch White Sox fan from morning ’til night
In front of the big screen for hours he’ll sit
Engrossed in the sport to the very last hit;
His ankles are taped, his knee gives him fits
But he just keeps on playin’ – the guy never quits!
So either he’s playing or watching a game,
He lives it, and breathes it – there’s nothing the same
Since he was a little tyke sports are his life,
I pity the girl that he takes for his wife!
