Our Dad

Our Dad is the swellest guy we know,
Full of fun and ready to go,
Always a hit with all our gang,
The life of the party - off with a bang!

He trusts us we know,
And it makes us very glad
To have him for our pal,
To have him for our Dad.

To him we can go
when we're feeling blue,
He knows what to say
and knows what to do.

He knows when to advise,
and when to keep quiet.
He understands,
and it makes our burdens light.

He's always our friend
Whether we're happy or sad.
We love him - and gee,
But we're proud he's our Dad.
