I think the song you are looking for is I GET TO
They used to make me go to church, clip on tie, starch a shirt.
I never heard the preacher's words all slouched down in that pew.
These days going to church is something I don't have to do, I get to.
I used to have to hang with Dad, wash his car, and cut the grass,
it took all day and I hated that. Till his heart attack last June.
These days helping dad is something I don't have to do, I get to.
I, I get to.
I get to wake up early an I get to go to work.
I get to make an honest living and put my hands down in the dirt.
I get to hear grandma complain about all her little aches and pains.
I get to rock my baby girl to sleep; spend my weekends coaching little league.
There's a lot of things I don't have to do. I get to. Yes I do.
I used to have to say those words, you always seemed to say them first,
I dreamt one night you left this earth and I woke up and reached for you.
Now I realize I don't have to say "I Love You." I get to.
Oh baby, I get to.
