"KID"
(Lyrics by Andrew Farrar, Music by John Butler, Jason Daniel, Mathew Frederick)
It was fall 1998 at the rally
3000 Expos fans was the tally
Vlad was there, Rusty gushed about Jarry
But I knew I couldn't leave without talking to Gary
Had to tell him all about the day 6 years prior
The night of his last game the night Kid retired
Had tickets in the bleachers, but I snuck down
Needed to say bye the only way I knew how
I told him I made a sign, spent all night drawing
And all I wanted was to make sure that he saw it
The slightest acknowledgement, would've been worth the while
But I was thrilled when I got a thumbs up and a smile
Then we stood together, singing the anthem loud
Posed for the cameras, held my sign up proud
The next morning Dad showed me the paper cover
There was Gary, hand on heart and me right above him
When I told Kid the story, he smiled and asked my name
And said he had that same pic at home in a frame
Today I got it hanging in my studio office
It's signed God Bless you, "The Kid" Gary Carter

Here's looking at you Kid
To your classic style
I won't forget the passion in your eyes
Here's looking at you Kid
For being bigger than life
And I know I'll never forget your smile

I can't imagine you playing hoops, kicking a punt
Can't imagine you fielding flyballs and not bunts
Can't imagine how it felt to lose your mom
So young but your dream to make the bigs lived on
Imagine how it felt to be so close and not win it
Imagine being the very last hope and still hit it
They don't make 'em like you anymore, these days
A player who smiles for fans and loves the game
Wanted to play like you, know everything about you
And now I can't imagine my childhood without you
Never would have been that great team without Kid's help
And without the team, might've never been a kid myself
I promise when I'm down, I'll think of that fall day
If I need inspiration, I'll think of how you played
If I need to act with class, I'll copy your style
If I need to feel young again I'll think of your smile

Here's looking at you Kid
To your classic style
I won't forget the passion in your eyes
Here's looking at you Kid
For being bigger than life
And I know I'll never forget your smile
Won't forget your smile
