Being A Dad…

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 31-01-2006

Listening to iTunes today, an old favorite of mine came on and I
started thinking of all time great Dad songs, great for yourself or for Fathers Day (always coming up!). My favorite:   Bein’ A Dad by Loudon Wainwright III. The elder Wainwright (Rufus’ dad)
puts it all in perspective, just when you felt that no one else could understand your dad pain. 



Bein’ a dad isn’t so bad

Except that you gotta feed ’em…

Bein’ a
dad can make you feel sad

Like you’re the insignificant other

Yeah right from the start

They break your heart

In the end every kid wants his mother.*



What are yours? I
will publish the list.
