Here he comes 
Mother's Pride 
With the first ever satchel she bought him swinging by his side 
Here he comes Mother's Pride 
With a headful of 'get your laces tied' and 'woe betide' 

With a year's supply of sandwiches and fairy cakes 
That she provides for him to eat at dinner breaks 
It's no surprise at all, at ad the friends he makes 
His stomach aches 
he's Mother's Pride 

He's presentable, well looked after 
He's domestically disastrous 
He's adorable 
Mother's Pride 

Here he comes 
Father's Pride 
With a head filled up with devil dogs and genocide 
Here he comes 
Father's Pride 
He's showing all the kids his tickets for ringside 

He'll always roam the yard looking for a fight 
He'll pick on all the kids who're twice his height 
He's the reason dinner ladies toss and turn at night 
Teacher's Blight 
Father's Pride 

He's the image of his Dad 
Mickey Mouse meets Jack the Lad 
He's never sad 
Father's Pride 

Here he comes Mother's Pride 
Here he comes Father's Pride 
Here he comes Mother's Pride 
Father's Pride 
His Mother's Pride
