That's the name I decided on

For your birth.

I couldn't even spell it for your birth report

But I wrote it down so I would know when it was time for that test.

You know that test when the nurse comes in and asks those questions.

I really wanted you to name yourself.

To tell the World just who you really are!

But I didn't

I was too afraid of what the World might say

To me.

Too afraid to stand up for myself

And speak

My son will name himself today

My son will name himself today.




Well that is that and this is this

And the name he gave himself was Chris.

 So World I'm screaming from the very top

The very top there can ever be

The name I gave my son was not to be

For he made a name for himself today.

He made a name for himself today
