Happy Father’s Day

I thought I had a recording of this all set to go for this past weekend but it turned out I had several early versions but never really finished it. So that’s what I did over the weekend. A late Father’s Day present is better than no Father’s Day present at all, right?

After I wrote a song for my mother, and being a colossal people-pleaser, I knew I had to be fair and make a song for my father. Fortunately this came along. Maybe I’ll just make little song ditties for every special day of note on the calendar. Watch for my future hit: Secretary’s Day!

This is still a rough demo, but it should communicate the idea well enough. I reminisce about that hallowed father and son bonding moment: sitting on the couch while he sleeps and wondering if I can get the remote away from him without waking him up. Warms the cockles of the heart, doesn’t it?

Happy Father’s Day (belated) to my much loved father and everyone else who is a father type person.


Happy Father’s Day
(Music/lyrics by Corey Blake)

I wrote this song for you
My father on Father’s Day

This time of year I
Think back on memories

We had such good times
Together just you and I

You on the sofa
Asleep watching TV

I hoped you wouldn’t wake
When I changed the channel

I’m sure there was other stuff
But that’s all I remember

Happy Father’s Day
