Children will drive you crazy.  I said, they’ll drive you mad

Mom carries labors and delivers them and the first word they say is Dad

Then they get older and toddle around, Step in dad’s shoes and look like a clown

The first years are so hectic, the long nights won’t end

It’s bottles, diapers and crying, no social life, no friends

But oh how those years seem to fly and you look back breathe deep and sigh

How could you miss it? How could that be?

It seems just like yesterday when they climbed on your knee

Asking the questions of what, who and why,

“Are we there yet?”  “Are we there yet?” ‘til you just want to cry

Yes, Children will drive you crazy.  I said, they’ll drive you mad

‘cause next it’s parties, dating and driving

and you think those first years weren’t bad

Now they want the car keys to go to the game,

Won’t hear of walking cause it’s just not the same

Then they finish with school and they’ve met someone “great”

And you lay there listening when they sneak in the house late

Then all of a sudden they want to move out

They want to find their own way, see what this world’s all about

And more than anything now you wish they were small

because you remember the days when you were their “all”

And you feel a bit crazy and just a bit mad

thinking back on those days and the memories you’ve had

Though you’re happy for them, you wish they’d not go

Because time went too quickly and you want them to know

That if you had it to do over, you’d do it again

Children are gifts sent from Heaven to treasure within

And though they can just drive you crazy and a little bit mad

You’d never trade one moment of the times that you’ve had
