Lyrics:

Little Boy

Jonathan Lang

Verse 1
Little boy, walking to school
How much he'd do, to be older
Fancy car and maturity
How much he'd do to fast-forward
Oh just to grow, and skip a few years.

Old man, rocking chair
How much he'd do, to be younger
Skip some stones and slow it down
How much he'd do to jump backwards
Oh to see the world, and have it all back

Chorus
It's funny how some have so much
Get that inch, damn they want that mile
It's funny how would do most anything
To be somewhere else

Verse 2
Working man, 80 hour weeks
How much he'd do, for a new job
Fat wallet, still unhappy
How much he'd do, to see his family
His kids pray for him to have some balance

Ungrateful husband, beautiful wife
How much he'd do for a new one
She loves him dearly, does her best
How much he'd do for someone younger
The woman cries, what did she do wrong

Chorus(x2)
It's funny how some have so much
Get that inch, damn they want that mile
It's funny how would do most anything
To be somewhere else

Outro
I'll tell you what, the higher you stack your money
The better chance it has to come crashing down
Damn what a mess, damn what a mess, for you and those around you
Damn what a mess, for you
