You say your man is everythin' you ever dreamed of
He's everythin' that you wanted me to be
And from lookin' at this photograph
I can see without a doubt
Oh, you have the perfect family

All that was I see me in the picture
Holdin' you and that little baby boy
His hair would have been blonder
And his eyes would have been blue
If that was me in the picture with you

With all respect I didn't mean to show my feelings
I'm thinkin' things that I have no right to say
Someone ought to write a song
'Bout wanderin' boys who can't come home
How they let the best thing slip away

Once again, I see me in the picture
Holdin' you and that little baby boy
His hair would have been blonder
And his eyes would have been blue
If that was me in the picture with you
If that was me in the picture with you
