What is that country song about a father watching his son grow?

It goes something like the father slams on the breaks and the child spills his fries and curses just like daddy or kneels and prayes like daddy?

    I love this song: Watching you by Rodney Atkins
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqYUns2YQik
    Driving through town just my boy and me
    With a happy meal in his booster seat
    Knowing that he couldn’t have the toy
    Till his nuggets were gone
    Green traffic light turned straight to red
    I hit my breaks and mumbled under my breath
    His fries went a flying and his orange drink covered his lap
    Well then my four year old said a four letter word
    That started with “s” and I was concerned
    So I said son now where did you learn to talk like that

    [Chorus one]

    He said I’ve been watching you dad, ain’t that cool
    I’m your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
    And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
    We got cowboy boots and camo pants
    Yeah we’re just alike, hey ain’t we dad
    I wanna do everything you do
    So I’ve been watching you

    We got back home and I went to the barn
    I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
    Said lord please help me help my stupid self
    Then this side of bedtime later that night
    Turning on my son’s scooby doo nightlight
    He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
    He closed his little eyes, folded his little hands
    And spoke to god like he was talking to a friend
    And I said son now where’d you learn to pray like that

    [Chorus two]

    He said I’ve been watching you dad, ain’t that cool
    I’m your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
    And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
    We like fixing things and holding mama’s hand
    Yeah we’re just alike, hey ain’t we dad
    I wanna do everything you do
    So I’ve been watching you

    [Bridge]

    With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug
    Said my little bear is growing up
    He said but when I’m big I’ll still know what to do

    [Chorus three]

    Cause I’ve been watching you dad, ain’t that cool
    I’m your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
    And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
    By then I’ll be as strong as superman
    We’ll be just alike, hey won’t we dad
    When I can do everything you do
    Cause I’ve been watching you

    The song is called ‘Watching You” and it’s by Rodney Atkins! That;s a great song!!! I love all of Rodney’s music, but my all time favorite is “These Are My People”.

    My Favorite Song “Watching You” By Rodney Atkins! I love that song & can’t get it out of my head,My sister plays that & Martina McBride’s “This One’s For The Girls” On constant repeat on her iPod Speakers & they travel throughout the house! I can’t get away from it! I love both songs! Hope this helps!
