  • The Father's Day Song (My Heart was in the Right Place Even Though I Did it Wrong). When I posted the Mother's Day version of this song, some of you asked if I would do it for Father's Day too. So here's the same song, but for Father's Day :) Song by Bryant Oden (

    Verse 1
    Every day you keep me safe and warm and loved and fed
    But today's your special day, It was my turn instead
    So I got up at 5 a.m. I've-been working hard since then
    Some things I didn't get quite right, next year I'll try again

    Just for you I did my best to cut my own hair
    Some places came out pretty good. And some are kind of bare
    I washed all your nicest clothes, but the washer wasn't free
    So I used the dish washer Pretty smart of me!

    Remember no one's perfect Every kid has faults
    Remember it's the thought that counts, more than the results
    My heart was in the right place even though I did it wrong
    It was all to say on Father's day my love for you is strong

    I vacuumed really quietly I didn't use the power
    I cleaned your dirty iPad screen, I held it in the shower
    I painted all the ceilings it was easy with the mop
    Now the carpet's painted too with cool rainbow drops!

    I answered all your work emails with "Just leave me alone"
    And we gave a prince from Scamdinavia a loan
    I watered all the house plants with the garden hose
    I forgot to turn it off sometimes that's how it goes

    Your car's shiny inside and out with lots of olive oil
    Who knew that oatmeal splatters up so high and far on boil
    I tried to make you orange juice but I spilled it on the floor
    I tried to fry you bacon we don't have a stove no more

    Since you can't really cook this week I called the pizza place
    I emptied out the fridge and freezer so there's enough space
    They should be here any time, two dozen pizza pies
    I paid with your credit card, I hope that you're surprised
