Mike Jarvis / Terry Radigan

I musta been 4 or 5 years old
Holding my father’s tools
Not doing what I was told
And learning how to break the rules
When i saw you standing at your mother’s side
The picture perfect poster child for polite
I didn’t know back then
There’d be a you & me

Fast forward to the lion’s den
I’d see you hanging round
But I was busy with my friends
On the wrong side of town
Getting into trouble
Learning all the wrong things
You were honor roll book club
All halo & wings
Still didn’t know back then
There’d be a you & me

You were keeping tabs on my
All those years
One day you thanked me for my service
And i said you wanna grab a beer
I didn’t pay for your drinks
But i did play wagon wheel
And that was the start of something real

And I knew right then
I’d found my best friend
So on Christmas Eve
I said girl will you marry me

Yeah cause I knew right then
I’d found my best friend
I didn’t get down on one knee
But still I asked you to marry me
