My Dad: A funny song for Father’s Day, Dad’s Birthday or any day

Here is the Youtube video for My Dad, a sweet, funny little song about dads- maybe YOUR dad- for Father’s Day, birthday or any day.  There are two versions. The first one is a faster, higher speed version.  The second two videos are the normal speed.  The lyrics and chords to My Dad are below. You can download this song from iTunes (top right sidebar).

My Dad: Faster, Higher Speed Version

My Dad: Original Normal Speed Version

My Dad: Guitar Tabs and Words

The Guitar chords to My Dad are pretty simple. Just CCFG in the same rhythm throughout the whole song.  I used capo 5th fret on guitar.  Here is the chords chart and lyrics.

CCFG

C               C      F          G
There’s some pretty great dads  in this world
C     C          F               G
and one of them is mine
C  C               F        G
I know no Dad is perfect
C             C        F            G
but he’s pretty darn close a lot of the time

He let’s me pop the popcorn when we watch a vid
I’m glad he’s my dad. And I’m glad I’m his kid

My Dad. I really love him. My Dad. Sometimes I bug him. My Dad. It’s nice to  hug him
When I’m sad.  My Dad.

Everybody tells me that he’s a heck of a guy.
Sure sometimes he’s a little bit grumpy. Sure sometimes I’m the reason why
When we play hide and seek. Somehow he always knows where I hid.
I’m glad he’s my dad. And I’m glad I’m his kid.

(chorus)

My dad is pretty busy. But I know I mean the world to him.
Even though he says no every time I offer to give him a trim.
He’s such a great dad I know he’ll forgive me for that last little oops I did
I’m glad he’s my dad. And I’m glad I’m his kid.

    I’m sorry, I recorded it “live” with guitar and voice together, so I don’t have an instrumental version. I’ll try to have one by next Father’s Day, next year. Sorry I can’t help this year.

  61. Jennifer Says:
    June 16th, 2011 at 9:51 am

    I have been searching to find the “Original Normal Speed Version” of “My Dad” for days now. My daughter wants to use the song as background music for a video for father’s day. All iTunes has is the “Faster Version” and it’s not near as good quite honestly! HELP!!!! Pleeeaase!

  62. Bryant Says:
    June 16th, 2011 at 10:18 am

    It should be on songdrops collection vol. 2 or Leftovers. Check again and if you cant find it email me at bryant @ songdrops.com. -Bryant

    I love this song! My dad is 39 this October and I am gonna sing it for him, but i changed “When we play hide and seek Somehow he always knows where I hid”
    to “I like it when he plays guitar ‘Cos I can usually sing along” and “Even though he says no Every time I offer to give him a trim” to “Even though he says no Every time I ask him to buy me a dog” Just ‘cos we don’t play hide and seek but he does play guitiar and I usualy sing. Aswell I only asked him once if I could give him a trim but I allways ask him for a dog!

    Hi Ajax. I still don’t have a karaoke version for My Dad. I recorded it “live” with guitar and voice together. I do plan to make them sometime, but haven’t done it yet. The chords are very very simple though. CCFG all the way through. So you might see if you can find someone who plays guitar.
    Good luck, and sorry. ~Bryant

    Love this song. Cute and witty. Easy enough for my pre-k/kinder kids to sing along. My class is planning a Father’s Day play and this will be our closing song. Can’t wait to see the faces of all the dads.
    Thanks for putting up the chords too. My 13 year old will be playing the guitar for us.

    Hi Brittany. I’m glad you like the song. I recorded it “live” with guitar and voice together, so I don’t have an instrumental version :( But the guitar chords are really easy. Maybe someone you know could play the guitar for you? (I know, not so easy to make that happen). Maybe you could show him the video anyway, and tell him what you hoped to do :) ~Bryant

    I looked for the longest time for a song that my 8 year old daughter could sing for her dad at his birthday party. I nearly lost hope for anything suitable when I finally came across “My Dad” – it was perfect. My daughter sang it with a friend playing the ukelele and her Dad got all teary-eyed – thanks for helping create a wonderful memory.

    Thanks Jacquelyn. It only works for me to write songs that come to me. I haven’t been able to make songs from requests, even when they are really nice ideas, like yours…
    I’m glad you like my songs :)

    Sadly, it doesn’t have a backing track. The guitar and voice were recorded together. :(
