05. When I Grow Up

Sharecropper's Seed: Volume 1
by Nicole C. Mullen


A little boy the age of five
Looked his papa in the eyes
And said I really need to talk to you
The answer finally came to me
What it is I wanna be
And superman I’m thinkin’ just won’t do

When I grow up I wanna be
When I grow up I wanna be
When I grow up I wanna be like you

The score was 33 to 9
His high school team was way behind
He felt defeated ‘til his papa came
Remember if you win or lose
I’m always
Gon’ be proud of you
You’re my favorite champion of the game
(the boy said)


He came to the door to say goodnight
Stopped at a familiar sight
Papa was kneelin’ down to pray
‘Dear father God up above
Thanks for showin’ me love’
Then quietly he heard his papa say
