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.


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.


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 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 🙂

    My dad is such a cool song. Was wondering how I wold go about getting a backing track?

  26. Bryant Says:

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

    Hi! I really like this song, congrats!! Do you have the music sheet? I play the piano and the children in my class are very young, it would be easier with one. Thanks so much for youy attention! Bless you!!

  36. Bryant Says:
    June 20th, 2016 at 9:26 am

    I’m glad you like the song, Adriana. Sorry, I don’t have a music sheet. The chords are just CCFG all the way through, so you may be able to create your own piano? Sorry I can’t help. I also don’t have a karaoke instrumental version for this one since I recorded the guitar and voice together.

    It sounds like The Duck Song.
