Thirty One More Time (click for lyrics & picture)

30 pic 2

Well you say you're turning thirty, well I know just how you feel
You see I've been there, a couple of times myself
It's been good along the way, raising you my son
I look at you and see so much of me

I watched you grow up to hear you sing I'm so damn proud it makes me yearn
Thirty I wish you were mine, one more time
To go back in time with you on my knee
Playing your guitar, strumming for me
Thirty I wish you were mine, one more time

Well you say you're turning thirty, well I know just how you feel
We only once go along this road
These simple words from your old Dad, a way for me to tell
Keep playing music, make the people feel

I watched you grow up to hear you sing
I'm so damn proud it makes me yearn
Thirty I wish you were mine, one more time
To go back in time with you on my knee
Playing your guitar, strumming for me
Thirty I wish you were mine

Sitting in the living room listening to you, playing your guitar and singing
Thinking someday you'd be writing your own songs
Mom and I dancing, watching you playing your songs Telling our friends, that's our boy on stage in the band

Thirty I wish you were mine, thirty I wish you were mine Thirty I wish you were mine, one more time
Thirty I wish you were mine, thirty I wish you were mine, all mine
Thirty I wish you were mine, one more time
Mom and I watching you, one more time
Oh thirty, I wish you were mine
