Lyrics & Music by Martin Shears


Adrian, can you come out and play?
Adrian, can you make it today?
Your bed is all made
Your room painted blue
Oh Adrian, the world waits for you

Adrian, we bought you some clothes
For ten little fingers and ten little toes
And when you open your eyes
The first thing you’ll see
Is your pretty big sister, your mommy, and me

And may you always know laughter
May you always know love
And always find comfort in heaven above
Oh Adrian, here’s a message for you
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do

Well I’ll chase all those monsters from under your bed
I’ll kiss it all better, that bump on your head
I’ll teach you to sing and play the guitar
And when you grow up you’ll be a rock ’n roll star

But I wouldn’t mind if you don’t climb a tree
Yeah, I wouldn’t mind if you look just like me
A beautiful baby, a bundle of joy
Oh Adrian, you’re my little boy
Oh Adrian, you’re my little boy
