Daddies And Sons

daddies and sons they like the same things
chocolate chip cookies and flying machines
things that go boom and a real messy room
staring and wondering ’bout the man in the moon

boys need to know how to slay fiery dragons
learn how to fish and pull big red wagons
learn how to hike and ride that new bike
and when they fall down dad will make it alright

it’s written in stone down through the ages
in so many books and on so many pages
how dads teach and sons learn and that’s the way it’s done
there’s something so special "bout daddies and sons

dad checks for monsters under the bed
that’s where they’re hiding or so his son says
say a prayer for safe keeping for that boy who is sleeping
a chip off the old block is what dad is thinking

boys they grow up as their dads they grow older
dads they get tired while their sons grow much bolder
but sons always know the right way to go
thanks to their dad who’s their one real hero

daddies and sons they share the same visions
learning to deal with life’s big decisions
and when it’s all over and every thing’s done
there’s nothing as loving as daddies and sons

yes, it’s written in stone down through the ages
in so many books and on so many pages
how dads teach and sons learn and that’s the way it’s done
there’s something so special ’bout daddies and sons
