Lyrics

Hold the chicken, hold the meat
Just serve him up whole wheat
Never try to trim his beard
Scissors are his only fear
He waits on me like I’m a queen
He's Santa Claus on Halloween
He's one of a kind, that boy of mine

CHORUS
The world pulls at us from all sides
But he stands strong, listening inside
He likes love and honesty
He'll stand by you, he'll stand by me
He’s one of a kind, that boy of mine

They can keep their ivy halls
And their mega shopping malls
The junk store is his favorite place
Hawaiian shirts and a tweed suitcase
He doesn't own a suit or tie
Except one from eighteen ninety-five
He's one of a kind, that boy of mine

He doesn't text but he is wise
He hates long goodbyes
He likes when you say what you mean
And don't chatter on like a talk machine
Fashion doesn't mean a thing
He can't dance but he sure can sing
He's one of a kind, that boy of mine

He’d give you his last dime
He works hard all the time
He likes deals and bartering
That's how he got my wedding ring
He can fix up our guitars
But not so much on a car
He's one of a kind, that boy of mine

He’s one of a kind, that boy of mine
Oh he’s my rock, that boy of mine
