The Lyrics

This parody is about wrestler 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair and his son David
who grew up to be a wrestler as well.
A child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were limos to catch
Whooo's to say
He learned to walk while I was away.
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew,
He say "I'm gonna be like you, dad,
You know I'm gonna be like you"

And the style and the profile
And the being the man
Little boy dreams of being more than a fan
"When you comin' home?"
I said "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know I'll teach you wrestling then.

"Well, my son turned ten just the other day.
He said "Thanks for the robe
Dad, come on let's play.
Can you teach me to sell?"
I said "not today I got a lot to do"
He said "that's okay"
And as he walked away his smile never dimmed
He said "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him!"

And the style and the profile
And the being the man
Little boy dreams of being more than a fan
"When you comin' home,?"
I said "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know I'll teach you wrestling then."

Well he came from the Plant just the other day
Not much like a man I just had to say
I'm proud of you, but you don't know how to style
He shook his head, and said, with a smile
"What I'd really like, dad, is to wrestle on Nitro
And get a title too.
And I wanna yell out Whoooo!"

And the style and the profile
And the being the man
Little boy dreams of being more than a fan
"When you comin' home,?"
He said "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
Maybe I'll learn some wrestling then"

I'm old and I'm tired, my son got his way
I called him up just the other day
I'd like to train you, your workrate's hell!"
He said "No need to, dad, I don't have to sell.
You see, Benoit does the job
And I always get the win
And it's sure nice no-selling to him, dad.
It's sure nice no-selling to him."
And as I hung up the phone it occured to me
He's grown up nothing like me
My boy was nothing like me.

And the style and the profile
And the being the man
Little boy dreams of being more than a fan
"When you comin' home,?"
He said "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know I'll teach you to no-sell then

I liked it. Sad, of course, like the original.
