Fathers are wonderful people, too little understood, And we do not sing their praises as often as we should,
For Father struggles daily to live up to his image As protector and provider and hero of the scrimmage,
And perhaps that is the reason we sometimes get the notion That fathers are not subject to the thing we call emotion. But if you look inside Dad's heart, where no one else can see,
You'll find he's sentimental and soft as he can be. Fathers are just wonderful in a million different ways, And they merit loving compliments and accolades of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires to fortune and success Is to make the family proud of him and bring them happiness, And like our heavenly Father, he's a guardian and a guide, Someone we can count on to be always on our side.
