NOT JUST ANY DAD
A Dad so heroic he received a medal of commendation
A Dad with a will so strong, not to be touched by the sexual
A Dad so stable not to want to be a hippie like all the rest.
A Dad with a heart so big it goes beyond saving the whales, its helping
to save souls.
A Dad so proud to walk down the isle and lovingly give his
A Dad so wonderful, not just any dad, this dad is my dad.
