Songs For Father’s Day
While I barely got a greeting on my first Mother’s Day from my husband this past May (sniff), I don’t intend to let my husband’s first Father’s Day go unmentioned as retaliation. Yes, I’ll probably get him a card, and treat him to a dinner or lunch. I also scoured the Internet looking for special Father’s Day songs we could sing to him come Father’s Day morning. Well, I’ll sing to him and our daughter will probably squeal being only 10 mos. and all.
I found a great site that has lyrics suited to Father’s Day but to the tunes of classics like Twinkle Twinkle Star or other well-known songs. Here’s an example:
To the tune of (take me out to the ballgame.)
oh i love my daddy.
and my daddy loves me.
he picks me up and gives me piggy back rides,
we run, jump and play, oh we have a good time.
oh i really love my daddy,
let’s shout three times, hooray,
oh i love, love love my daddy so especially on father’s day
It’s quite cute, isn’t it? I think I’ll try to make up my own song as well. Let’s give it a try:
Daddy, Daddy you’re funny
You make goofy faces at me
Makes me laugh and makes me smile
Cuddles me more than once a while
Daddy, Daddy you’re so sweet
Having you is such a treat!
I am proud to say that I have a husband who is a sucker for all these mushy cute stuff! It would be great to have our daughter memorize songs that honor fathers as she grows up. I can’t help but be reminded of the fact that restaurants and shops are buzzing when Mother’s Day rolls around, but is business as usual on Father’s Day. I hope to teach my Dad to honor her father, and recognize his contribution, as we all should for our deserving fathers.
