Manvotional: A Little Fellow Follows Me | The Art of Manliness

A careful man I want to be –

a little fellow follows me.

I do not dare to go astray,

for fear he’ll go the self-same way.

I cannot once escape his eyes.

Whatever he sees me do he tries.

Like me he says he’s going to be –

that little chap who follows me…

He knows that I am big and fine –

And believes in every word of mine.

The base in me he must not see –

that little chap who follows me…

But after all it’s easier,

that brighter road to climb,

With little hands behind me –

to push me all the time.

And I reckon I’m a better man

than what I used to be…

Because I have this lad at home

who thinks the world of me.
