Eddie Mugavero: music

5 O'CLOCK SHADOW

(Written by Eddie Mugavero & Bob Dellaposta-sung by Ronnie Wallace)
Another Bob & Eddie 'kid' song.Bob is a great Daddy, and came up with countless titles and ideas about kids. I was always the dude who wanted them, so together, our songs were always laced with reality and fantasy about having children. Ronnie was our best 'kid' song singer!!!
5 O'CLOCK SHADOW

I PULL INTO THE DRIVEWAY AND MY SON COMES RUNNING UP
I BARELY EVEN STOP THE CAR HE GIVES ME A BIG HUG
HE'S MY LITTLE BUDDY, I'M HIS BIGGEST PAL
AND EVERYNIGHT UNTIL THE SUN GOES DOWN..

HE'S MY 5 O'CLOCK SHADOW
GOIN' EVERYWHERE DAD GOES
OH, HE MAKES HIS DAD GLOW
HOW MY LITTLE SON SHINES

ALWAYS TRYIN' ON DAD'S CLOTHES..ALWAYS STEPPIN' ON DAD'S TOES
HE'S MY 5 O'CLOCK SHADOW
AND THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE

ON WEEKENDS HE WON'T LET ME SLEEP HE WAKES ME UP AT DAWN
HE MAKES BELIEVE HE'S SHAVIN' TOO AND YAWNS EACH TIME I YAWN
A SPECIAL KIND OF FRIENDSHIP, A PRECIOUS KIND OF LOVE
AND ALL DAY LONG UNTIL THE MOON SHOWS UP...

CHORUS

HE FOLLOWS IN MY FOOTSTEPS AND MATCHES EVERY STRIDE
IF HE'S NOT RIGHT BEHIND ME, HE'S RIGHT THERE BY MY SIDE

CHORUS
