"You can be an A, you can be an architect creating buildings that touch the sky," is how 6-year-old Sam White begins his own spin on the ABCs. 

The little dynamo from Tennessee in the US penned the viral song with the help of his dad Bobby White called You Can Be ABCs where instead of fruit or animals, the preschooler uses job titles for each letter of the alphabet. 

"I wanted to introduce Sam to careers and opportunities and this was a fun way. He helped me out coming up with a couple of the names, nurses, firefighters and a few others in there," Bobby said in an interview about how it all came together.

The video of the talented little guy performing his song has been shared more than 600 000 times on Instagram. 

It was even shared by former first lady Michelle Obama who said she "absolutely loved" Sam's song and that "it would inspire so many kids to dream big".
