I’m going to keep this simple and let the full lyrics, which I have painstakingly transcribed and assembled below the jump, speak for themselves: Donovan McNabb, who retired in 2011 and played his last meaningful game in 2010, has a very supportive mother His mother, Wilma McNabb, recently recorded a song about her son The song, which has a grudge against choruses, features a creepy quotient that would make Lucille Bluth cringe with embarrassment The line about the clock ticking away is either the most oblivious or the most passive-aggressive line ever to be put to music Drink it in, folks: When Your Heart is on the field by Mama McNabb I will be there to cheer you on You are my son, my champion He gives me strength when I am weak He shows me who I want to be He’s my light when I can’t see He gives me reasons to believe When the cheers…fade away I’ll be there at the end of the day When your heart is on the field From his first game, to stadium lights From fall to inspiring winter nights I’ll be watching, feeling so proud Whether he wins or loses with his home crowd It’s hard to watch But I won’t turn away Because I’m his biggest fan Every night and every day, I’m his biggest fan When your heart is on the field I’m right there watching you (watching you) Wearing his jersey, making him signs Seeing all his hard work, knowing it’s his time Realizing others feel the same way, they worry too Wanting everyone’s son to do his best they all amaze you Seeing all the lives he’s touched in the excitement of children’s eyes Always telling him reach for the stars He’s already touched the sky! Emotions fill the air Something comes over me Like the end of the game When the clock ticks away with speed. He’s the one that they trust the game in his hands He leads his team, everything goes to plan The final score doesn’t matter I’ve already won I’ve been a champion because he’s my son He gives me strength when I am weak He shows me who I want to be He’s my light when I can’t see He gives me reasons to believe When the cheers…fade away I’ll be there at the end of the day You know that love is real When you heart is on the field I will be there to cheer you on You are my son, my champion by Dan from wheeeeeeee.com via Barstool Sports   Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
