642 in 20 – #4 – With Vlog!

For all the dads in the house. Here’s a song for you. *Please note* Some lyrics are explicit.

Write a song.

Ode to Dads

it’s not like it’s easy at the office every day
pacing floors throwing darts keeping clients a-okay
living a dream that was born before our now
when freedom was a gift not a figure out how

in the morning when we wake in a bed overflowing
with knees and feet and hair attached to bodies every growing
the hardest thing to do is get up and leave the house
leave the mess, leave the kids, leave your sexy hot spouse

chorus
daddys rule
daddy’s cool
daddy ain’t a silly fool
daddy’s tool
makes the moms in the schoolyard drool

the thing about family that ain’t in the books
is how the kids melt your heart with their love-sticky looks
that no matter how your job fills your plate and the bank
nothing beats your kid’s embrace or her farts that stank

fathers are the kings of the castles on the block
fathers must protect all the sheep in their flock
fathers know the truth is that the mothers run the show
and if they want play just do the dishes, yo

chorus
daddys rule
daddy’s cool
daddy ain’t a silly fool
daddy’s tool
makes the moms in the schoolyard drool

bridge
all the daddies in the house say ah-oh
all the daddies in the house say i-rule

they may not cry at movies or talk about their hopes
doesn’t mean they’re all weak, unemotional dopes
give em space on the couch let em snore in the bed
if they fold the laundry well, you better give ’em head

chorus
daddys rule
daddy’s cool
daddy ain’t a silly fool
daddy’s tool
makes the moms in the schoolyard drool
