A true story from just a few minutes ago . . .

When my now 7 year old was an infant until about 3 years old, on the nights I tucked her in, I would sing to her "You've Got a Friend in Me" (the Randy Newman song used in Toy Story) and Tiger Rag.

I don't tuck her in much any more - work, she's getting older, she likes to read until past bedtime, etc.

She's feeling a little under the weather tonight and Mom is out (shooting dice and gettin liquored up with the women folk, I guess - but I digress), so she asked me to stay with her a little bit.

I sang her "You've Got a Friend" and kissed her goodnight. She said "Are you leaving already?"

I said, "Well, yeah, it's late and you need your rest."

She said, "But Daddy, would you please sing Tiger Rag to me?"

What a gift . . .

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
You've got troubles, I got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We'll stick together and we'll see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me

Now some people might be a little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It's me and you, boy

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You're gonna see that it's our destiny
You've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me

I think I got that right from memory. Thanks for sharing your story.

You've got a friend in me, Savannah
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old DAD said
(He said)You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
You've got troubles, I got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We'll stick together and we'll see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me

Now some people might be a little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It's me and you, girl

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You're gonna see that it's our destiny
You've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me
(and always will) You've got a friend in me !

Clemson Lyrics


Clemson
"Tiger Rag"

Long ago way down in the jungle
Someone got an inspiration for a tune
And that jingle came from the jungle
Became famous mighty soon
Thrills and chills it sends through you
Hot so hot it burns you too
Though it's just the growl of the Tiger
It was written in a syncopated way
More and more they yell for the Tiger
Everywhere you go today, they're shoutin:
Where's that Tiger?
Where's that Tiger?
Where's that Tiger?
Where's that Tiger?
Hold that Tiger!
Hold that Tiger!
Hold that Tiger!
C-L-E-M-S-O...N!
