Me: Why are you on youtube?
K: Trying to find a good father-son song.
Me: There’s Cat’s in the Cradle.
K: I said, a good father-son song.
Me: That’s a GREAT song!
K: I meant, a song I could sing to my son without worrying he may hate me at some point in the distant future.
Me: Oh. Any luck?
So I asked DJ Googly and it seems that K is right:
As long as one and one is two there could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you. [Father and Daughter]
I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May. I guess you’d say. What can make me feel this way? My girl. [My Girl]
In my daughter’s eyes darkness turns to light and the world is at peace I find reason to believe, in my daughter’s eyes. [In My Daughter’s Eyes]
I thank God for butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer sticking little white flowers all up in her hair. [Butterfly Kisses]
I got no love from my daddy cause the coward wasn’t there. He passed away and I didn’t cry, cause my anger wouldn’t let me feel for a stranger They say I’m wrong and I’m heartless, but all along I was lookin for a father he was gone. [Dear Mama]
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again. From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen. I know that I have to go away. [Father & Son]
Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he lay his hat was his home. All he left us was alone. [Papa Was a Rolling Stone]
My son turned ten just the other day. He said “Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on lets play, can you teach me to throw?” I said, “Not today, I got a lot to do” [Cat’s in the Cradle]
It appears musicians love their little girls. And hate their fathers. An interesting conundrum since K loves singing to his son, and Waleed, if the brightness of his smile is any indication, thinks his father’s voice has no equal [granted, Waleed’s experience is limited]. So until we find a positive father-son song, or a singer who likes his dad pens a song, we’ll be adapting.

Are we missing something? Heard any non-therapy inducing father-son songs lately?
