There are little eyes upon you
and they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.

There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And little children dreaming
of the day they'll be like you.

You're the little children's idol,
you're the wisest of the wise.
In their little minds about you
no suspicions ever rise.

They believe in you devoutly,
hold all you say and do;
they will say and do, in your way
when they're grown up just like you.

There's a wide-eyed little student
who believes you're always right;
and their eyes are always opened,
and they watch you day and night.

You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
For the little child who's waiting
to grow up to be like you.
