Beautiful Boy

LYRICS

close your eyes,
have no fear,
the monster's gone,
he's on the run and your mommy's here,
(chorus)
beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy
beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy
before you go to sleep,
say a little prayer,
every day in every way,
it's getting better and better,
(chorus)
out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
to see you come of age,
but I guess we'll both just have to be patient,
cuz it's a long way to go,
a hard row to hoe
yes it's a long way to go but in the meantime,
before you cross the street,
take my hand,
life is what happens to you,
while you're busy making other plans,
(chorus)
before you go to sleep, say a little prayer,
ev'ry day, in ev'ry way
it's getting better and better.
(chorus)

This song means so much to me. I sang it to my belly when I was pregnant with my son and still sing it to him now. I have loved this song since hearing it by John Lennon. It describes in so many ways the love I feel for my son.

I have 2 boys and I love them so much. They have made my life complete in so many ways and this song makes me think of them--even though they are grown now

This song holds such emotion with me. I am the very proud mom of two sons' (20 and 23). We just recentley found out that my oldest son and his wife are having a beautifuly baby boy on June 3, 2005. My son and I have been talking and he is just bouncing off the walls waiting for his beautiful baby boy. I just can't put into words the love a mom has for her beautiful baby(s) boy. I have been blessed and pray that he and his lovely wife are blessed too.

I have a son that is 16. He is my only son and my youngest. They grow up so fast. Each time I hear this song, wonderful memories of his childhood run through my mind. This song surely touches the heart of every mother who has a son!!

This song touches me so deeply as my 9 year old son was born with a heart defect and all the tough times we went through together are very much reflected on this song. It takes me back to the time when light at the end of the tunel seemed so hard to reach. Thank you for this song.

This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard - I love the arrangement & it makes me think of my 2-year old grandson everytime I hear it. I'm going to buy the CD for myself & 1 for my dauther. He falls asleep every night with music playing softly & I hope he can fall asleep to this one.

I babysit all the time and one of the little boys I babysit for has really bad nightmares. Nothing would soothe him and he's wake up screaming (and scaring me to death). The first time I sang this song to him he stopped crying! Now he's never afraid to go to sleep again and the nightmares are going away. Thank you so much Celine for making the world a more musical place!

Elle vit sa chanson et la chante comme un ange.
