Thank you dad, for teaching me to pray.

Wondering when I’d be safe and back in your sight,

Now with my own children coming soon,

Is there room beside you in that prayer room?

So I wish you the Happiest Father’s Day.

A wish for Dads far and wide,

From the big cities, to the quite countryside.

Is how you spend your busy week.

Some work in an office or on the assembly line,

But every dad is greater when he gives his time.

Dad, you’re my hero, strong and bold,
But your dance moves, they’re a sight to behold.
You try to be cool, but oh, what a laugh,
When you bust a move, it’s like a giraffe.

With socks and sandals, your signature style,
You rock the dad jokes that make us smile.
You’re the king of barbecues, a grill master supreme,
But when it comes to dancing, Dad, it’s quite the meme.

Happy Father’s Day, you funny dad, you’re a hit!

With you, I can surf any wild tide.
Happy Father’s Day, to the ultimate dad I know,
Forever grateful for the joy you continue to bestow.

Daddy, my giggly guru

Daddy, you’re my giggly guru, so sky-high,
You rescue me when I trip, reaching for the sky.

You snore like a champion

Dad, your fashion sense is quite a scene,
Those high socks and sandals, so pristine.
Your jokes are cheesy, yet you never cease,
To make us groan and laugh in disbelief.

You snore like a champion, loud and clear,
Shaking the windows, causing quite the fear.
But despite it all, we love you so,
Dad, you’re the best, even with your quirks in tow!
