I saw your wisdom, your courage too,
And I learned I could rely on you.
Your tolerant nature was really great,
Nevertheless, you'd not hesitate
To let me know when I'd been bad
It must have been hard, but that's being a dad.
You're strong and smart and filled with love
A gift to me from up above.
So here's a greeting from your biggest fan:
Happy Birthday Dad, "You're the man!"
