A dad whose a million miles away

When he meets me who knows what he'll see

but deep down I know I shouldn't be afraid because he is bound to be a lot like me

and....we'll...make angels in the snow till the snow begins to blow

and we'll run inside and start a tickle fight

if it's to cold to sled we'll make ginger bread instead

and then cuddle till he tucks me in a night

and we'll have our pictures taken for the Christmas cards we're makin

Him and me in suits of matching plaid

and when people see us walking they'll be google eyed and gauching

at Buddy and the Worlds Greatest Dad

Mr. Narwhal:

Good luck Buddy hope you find your dad


Thanks Mr. Narwhal

We'll spend mornings holding hands, holding hands and making plans

on whether to play jacks or kick the can

then for much a ginger snap and a nap to fill the gap

to be building forts and playing superman

and if his back gives him a spasm well then every good dad has'm

I'll bring him coco and a heating pad

It's a scene inside a snow globe and a very aprapoglobe

just Buddy and the Worlds Greatest Dad


Santa, Santa no no no not Santa sorry

Person 1:

Check it out, Check it out


Thank you, thank you

Person 2:


[taxi beeps]


Whoa you did it worlds best Silverado congratulations that is quite and accomplishment

We'll share a whole fruit cake slice by slice

making sure not one single crumb drops


Get out of here freak


And if I were to say that I was in a Christmas play

he wouldn't miss it for a million gum drops

[aah] when I fall and scape my knee he will kiss that knee for me

and make that boo boo better in a jiff

If I should get a cold just allergies from mold

He'll gazuntiight me with his own hanker chief

and if ever things turn gloomful I will know that there's a room full

of hugs and jokes to make it seem less bad

I can't hid my admiration for that perfect combination

for Buddy and the Worlds Greatest Dad

So I'm gunna try my best to be

Everything you'd expect of me

and I promise I won't stop until I'm done

so some day you can say

I'm the worlds greatest son
