“Father’s Day” released by Weddings Parties Anything

I haven’t always been a single man
And I haven’t always lived up here
Along with all these other single men
With a ring around the bath and a cigarette butt in my beer

I haven’t always been a lonely man
And I haven’t always lived alone
As you know I haven’t always drunk this much
But hey before you cut me down
Just try standing in my shoes
Because I don’t have to hear one word of this, no

On any other day
I might care what you say
But every Saturday is Father’s day
You might call it sad
You might call me mad
But I’ve got one who calls me Dad

And all the other blokes who live up here
Know how to leave a man alone
They’re not a bad ol’ bunch who live up here
Ah, but you know that it’s not family, it’s not home

What of the darling wife that once I had?
Well I’m pleased to say that she still talks to me
But I try not to think of what went wrong
Because if I say that I was right
She might say that she was right
And the only rights I care about are visiting rights, yeah

On any other day
I might care what you say
But every Saturday is Father’s day
You might call it sad
You might call me mad
But I’ve got one who calls me Dad

We go where he wants to go (He calls me Dad)
We do what he wants to do (He calls me Dad)
I tell everything I know (He calls me Dad)
Cos I’d do anything to prove
Yeah, I’d do anything to prove

That every Saturday
I will do just what he says
Because every single Saturday is Father’s day
You might call it sad
You might call me mad
But it don’t feel so bad, when he calls me
You might call it sad
You might call me mad
But it don’t feel half bad, when he calls me
You might call it sad
You might call me mad
But God I feel so great… when he calls me Dad

Yeah, he calls me Dad

I haven’t always been a single man…
