Bobby Bare - Childhood Hero Lyrics




She smiled and said, "If you are who I think you are
I'd really like to meet you."
I laughed and said, "If you are what I think you are
I'd like to meet you too."

She said, "You've taught me lots of things
But I'll bet there's some things that I could teach you
And though you don't know me
I sure know you."

"'Cause you are my childhood hero.", she said
"I got all your records I know all your songs
And I got your picture tacked over my bed
And you know I once wrote you a letter.", she said
"And I don't believe that a night that was spent
By a girl with her childhood hero could ever be wrong."

"A thousand songs, a hundred poems
And a half, half a fifth of Chivas Regal
While my picture on the wall looked down
And winked at me as if the bastard knew."

And he listened as she whispered,"Hold me close
So I can dream about this later
When you've forgotten me
I'll remember you."

"'Cause you are my childhood hero.", she said
"I got all your records I know all your songs
And I got your picture tacked over my bed
And you know I once wrote you a letter.", she said
"And I don't believe that a night that was spent
By a girl with her childhood hero could ever be wrong..."
