Comments:

A beautiful, heart-warming song. Anyone who gets "a bit damned freaked out" listening to it has unexamined issues of his own.

I loved it when I first heard it but then I started listening to the lyrics and got a bit damn freaked out.

I agree Dave we've come a long way in the wrong direction. But that doesn't take away the heart behind such a warm and caring song.
- Rob, Chicago, IL

It IS about him having to babysit, but these days, I don't think it could ever be a hit. There would be all sorts of talk about him being a pedophile and the like. We've come a long way in the wrong direction. I like it.
