Dear Dad, I think about you every now and then
I hope to God that I don't turn out like you as I grip this pen
Every time you cross my mind, I cross my heart and hope to die
That I won't ever let myself become a disappointment to my mum

Father, you never bothered
About as close as north and south are to each other
But my mother, I really love her
Although sometimes I wish she would have chose another

As I reminisce, I think of all the birthdays and Christmases you missed
And no millionaire could afford what you cost me walking out the door
I've cried a thousand times but now I realize that this is only biological
You're a name on my birth certificate and that's all

Father, you never bothered
About as close as north and south are to each other
But my mother, I really love her
Although sometimes I wish she would have chose another

I'll tie a rope around the neck of your Fred Perry
And hang you from my family tree
