World's Greatest Dad Lyrics
BUDDY
A DAD WHO'S A MILLION MILES
AWAY
WHEN HE MEETS ME, WHO KNOWS
WHAT HE'LL SEE
BUT DEEP DOWN I KNOW I
SHOULDN'T BE AFRAID
'CAUSE HE'S BOUND TO BE A LOT
LIKE ME

AND WE'LL MAKE ANGELS IN THE
SNOW
TILL THE SNOW BEGINS TO BLOW
THEN WE'LL RUN INSIDE AND
START A TICKLE FIGHT
AND IF IT'S TOO COLD TO SLED
WE'LL EAT GINGERBREAD INSTEAD
AND THEN CUDDLE TILL HE TUCKS
ME IN AT 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
GAWKING
AT BUDDY AND THE WORLD'S
GREATEST DAD

MR. NARWHAL
Good luck, Buddy. Hope you find your
Dad

BUDDY
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 LUNCH A GINGERSNAP
THEN A NAP TO FILL THE GAP
BETWEEN BUILDING FORTS AND
PLAYING SUPERMAN

AND IF HIS BACK GIVES HIM A
SPASM
WELL, EVERY GOOD DAD HAS 'EM
I'LL BRING HIM COCOA AND A
HEATING PAD

IT'S A SCENE INSIDE A SNOW GLOBE
IT'S A VERY APROPOS GLOBE
JUST BUDDY AND THE WORLD'S
GREATEST DAD

(BUDDY arrives in New York)

WE'LL SHARE A WHOLE FRUIT
CAN SLICE BY SLICE
MAKING SURE NOT ONE SINGLE
CRUMB DROPS
AND IF I WERE TO SAY, "I'M IN A
CHRISTMAS PLAY"
HE WOULDN'T MISS IT FOR A
MILLION GUMDROPS

WHEN I FALL AND SCRAPE MY
KNEE
HE'LL KISS THAT KNEE FOR ME
AND MAKE THAT BOOBOO BETTER
IN A JIFF

AND IF I SHOULD GET A COLD
OR JUST ALLEGIES FROM MOLD
HE'LL GAZOONTITE-ME WITH HIS
OWN HANDKERCHIEF

AND IF EVER THING TURN
GLOOMFUL
I'LL KNOW THAT THERE'S A
ROOMFUL
OF HUGS AND JOKES TO MAKE IT
SEEM LESS BAD

I CAN'T HIDE MY ADMRATION
FOR THAT PERFECT COMBINATION
OF BUDDY AND THE WORLD'S
GREATEST DAD

SO I'M GONNA TRY MY BEST TO BE
EVERYTHING YOU'D EXPECT OF ME
AND I PROMISE THAT I WON'T STOP
UNTIL I'M DONE
SO SOME DAY YOU CAN SAY I'M
THE WORLD'S GREATEST SON
