"Dad" as written by and John Feldmann....
Dad I hate to tell ya
Sometimes i want to slap you in the face
But dad i gotta tell you
If you were gone I'd miss you from this place

don't go away again
i just want to be your friend and if i don't
say this now I'm gonna be sorry
i don't want to make the same mistake again

Dad i need to tell you
sometimes i i want to walk right out the door
Dad I'm gonna tell you
I'm glad we don't argue like before


Dad i need to tell you sometimes its hard
to tell you how i feel
and dad I'm gonna tell you I wish
that all our differences weren't real.


See the older that i get
I'm becoming you
Dad i want to tell you
I just want to take away your pain

    General CommentThis song is about a kid and his dad who don't get along/see eye to eye. It really hits home.

    General Commentthis song is good. its about a father and son who dont exactly see eye to eye. who have differences they need to work out. and he wants to tell his dad exactly what he thinks of him. etc. cant really say much more than what the others have said already.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of the smurfs. At times, papa smurf can be domineering and a hierachy nazi, and hated by many other characters (like gargamel). however, without papa smurf, the smurf village will be in total calamity. without a ruler, the smurfs will riot against their communist nation, demanding to be an individual country without the support of the british goverment (the english army). in conclusion, you should be nice to papa smurf. One must not strike down papa smurf, as that would surcome to the end of the smurf population.

    General Commenti would also like to add that smurfette is the only female smurf from east to west.
