Father's Day Sea Chanty
Fer yer dear ol' Pappy
CHORUS: It’s Father’s Day again my friend, it’s Father’s Day again (rpt.)
For Father’s Day I’ll tell ya, me Dad was quite a guy
And underneath his patch I was the apple of his eye
Although we never got along, to tell you all the truth

Each week(ish), I send out a short collection of things that caught my eye, made me think, or made me laugh.
He never did forgive me for the time I stole his tooth!
Me pappy had a parrot, and Polly was it’s name
So I breaded it with crackers and I cooked it o’er a flame
Me Paw smelled worse than Black Beard, more foul than Captain Cook
In fact he nearly sank the ship when he made me pull his hook
I really miss me Pappy, it’s him I’d like to thank
But sadly, we’ve not spoken since I made him walk the plank
So if you’ve got a Father, here’s something I would beg
Even if you don’t get along, don’t chop down his leg!
