Father's Day Lyrics
Lyrics to Father's Day :
When I was sixteen I cut myself a Mohawk,
Because I wanted to walk the walk,
And not just talk the talk,
But it was a bit of a disaster because
I did the sides with kitchen scissors,
Because I didn't have any clippers,
And I didn't want to use a beard-trimmer -
I'd made that mistake before.

When you got home you didn't want to talk about what I'd done.
You said I'd let you down, I'd fucked around, when I was only having fun.
With the way that you've been lately, you've no right to scream and shout.
You and I, we've got a lot that we need to talk about.

What's the point in making vows that you're never going to keep?
A lifetime lying awake means you'll never get to sleep.
And all the promises you made, that were painful and untrue,
Of all the things you do they reflect worst on you.

We all have our own devices
For handling mid-life crises -
Usually involves a motorbike and
Suspicious fashion decisions.
But you choose to stave off grey hairs by
Lamely hacking at the sides
With lies and flimsy alibis
For your suspicious expeditions.

When I get home I don't want to talk about what you've done.
Yes you've let me down, you've fucked around, but I guess you were having fun.
With the way that I've been lately, I've no right to scream and shout.
You and I, we've got a lot that we need to talk about.

You always told me Father's Day was just another way
Of selling Hallmark greeting cards
Twenty Years of waking sleep, of lying through your teeth,
Meant every Father's Day spent wondering who the hell you are.

What's the point in us making vows that we're never going to keep?
I keep trying to keep you up, but you keep on falling asleep.
And all the promises we made were painful and untrue,
But for better or for worse, I am turning into you.

I haven't always been a single man,
And I haven't always lived up here.
Along with all these other single men,
With a ring around the bath, and a cigarette butt in my beer,
And I haven't always been a lonely man,
And I haven't always lived alone.
And you know I haven't always drunk this much,
But hey before you cut me down,
Just try standing in my shoes,
'Cause I don't have to hear one word of this no.

(Chorus)
On any other day,
I might care what you say,
But every Saturday is Father's Day.
You might call it sad,
You might call me mad,

But I've got one- who calls me Dad.


And all the other blokes that live up here,
Know how to leave a man alone.
They're not a bad old bunch that live up here,
Ah but you know that it's not family and it's not home.
What of a darlin' wife that once I had?
Well I'm pleased to say that she still talks to me.
But I try not to think of what went wrong,
'Cause if I say that I was right,
She might say that she was right,
And the only rights I care about are visiting rights yeah.
We go where he wants to go.
We do what he wants to do.
I tell him everything I know,
'Cause I'd do anything to prove,
Yeah I'd do anything to prove.

Tell my mama not to worry about me
Cause I ain't ever had a second to forget my daddy
I can't help but to believe in myself
It's not really a choice but a matter of being a real daddy
When I came to the world, I knew I had a talent
But I never did imagine I would be a young daddy
And I grew up like a wheel in a night night
Through a crack in the concrete, look at me - young daddy
Tell me how to walk away from a child
And I'll tell you how to walk away from a million - dumb daddy
If you can walk away from a million bucks
Then you never gave a fuck, you a dumb-luck daddy
To wake up and see a man above you
To tell you that you ain't invisible, that's a motherfucking daddy
So I need to push you and teach you how to fight
If you need to fight, fuck a right, that's a good daddy
Gotta take a second now, show love
To the trailer park, apartment, hood daddies
A man who ain't got a lot
But in a minute he would drop it all, do anything he could daddy
Jesus, when I go to sleep I feel every baby mama who never had a real daddy
Go take it out on the baby, or maybe even the man when he's only trying to become a real daddy

Father's Day by Children Of Eden Cast
FATHER
Sleeping there like angels
Innocent and simple
I think she's got my nose
I think he's got my dimple

In my own image
From my likeness are they sprung
They will keep me company
They will keep me young

That's what it means to be a Father
Planning their future as you watch your children sleep
That's what it means to be a Father
I never knew that I could feel a love so deep

Well I will be their teacher and I will be their guide
And anything they'll ever need I'll be there to provide
And in return, they'll love me
Stay forever at my side
That's what it means to be a Father

For I have built a universe, spectacular and new
And I sat there in my universe and learned that this was true:
What use is a universe with no one to give it to?
Not a hill of beans
'Til you pass along your genes
That's what it means to be a Father
