This Daddy Thing

Rating: 5.0
I remember
waking up to the sound
saturday morning cartoons
G.I. Joes raging war
on that carpet battlefield
in your bedroom

Barefoot
stepping on toy cars
Causing panic at the Indianapolis five hundred
two hundred laps on the living room floor
Laughing outloud to myself
wondering just what I got myself into

This daddy thing
got my nerves on edge
got my tongue twisted
Come toss the football with me
tell me how fish swim like that
what makes the rain
This daddy thing
it just keeps getting better day by day
When I look into his amazing innocent eyes
this daddy thing
is the greatest feeling

Why is the sun so high up in the sky
touches us so why can't we touch it too
And can you tell me
why stars only come out at night
Is it so they can catch our wishes
before they fall

Why is the ocean blue
why is red not orange
or even purple
Somethings just can't be explained
just the way this world was made

This daddy thing
got my nerves on edge
got my tongue twisted
Come toss the football with me
tell me how fish swim like that
what makes the rain
This daddy thing
it just keeps getting better day by day
When I look into his amazing innocent eyes
this daddy thing
is the greatest feeling...
