Giant Steps

You’re just a little boy
Clinging to your father’s hand
Your legs are working hard
Keeping up with your old man
And it gives you a feeling you can’t explain
To you this big old world is just a game

Taking giant steps, giant steps
A leap and a bound barely touching the ground
Time to stretch those wings, try new things
Learning to reach for your best
Taking giant steps

Now I’m too old for games
Or so I used to think
But part of me’s a child
And I’ve found that missing link
As our days rush by us we’ll grow as one
The two of us, like father like son

Taking giant steps, giant steps
A leap and a bound barely touching the ground
Time to stretch those wings, try new things
Learning to reach for our best
Taking giant steps

Soon the day will come
When you’ll run ahead of me
Certain of yourself
And what you’re gonna be
But whenever you stumble and lose your stride
May you never lose the boy down inside

Taking giant steps, giant steps
A leap and a bound barely touching the ground
Time to stretch those wings, try new things
Learning to reach for your best
Taking giant steps
