Well he's shining his shoes
And he's combing his black hair
He don't even know I'm there
Watching him get dressed
And he's reading the morning news
Having his cup of brew
I only see him
When I'm going to bed
But he's still my dad

Well he works in the big big town
And he's bossing everybody around
Every once in a while I come see him
When we're shopping for clothes to wear
Every once in a while I stop and see him
When I go downtown to cut my hair

When he comes home he disappears
Been acting like that for years
I only see him when I'm going to bed
But he's still my dad

Sometimes he seems so tall
Not like a dad at all
And I get so scared
Mama come and save me from him
Mama come and save me from him

And on a Saturday
He wants to go out and play
We throw the ball around
And he lets me tackle him to the ground
Then he turns on the grill
And he cooks us some food

Then he puts me to sleep
My number one enemy
I only see him when I'm going to bed
But he's still my dad
Oh he's still my dad
Oh he's still my dad
