SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Be careful which songs you dedicate to Dad this Father’s Day (Jun. 20) – some daddy ditties are far too drab.

Many famous songs about fathers are so harsh, they could ruin Dad’s special holiday if played at a party.

For instance, The Doors’ jam “The End,” could certainly put a damper on things with lyrics like: Father?/ Yes, Son?/ I want to kill you.

Then there’s Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s In The Cradle” which laments: When you comin’ home, Dad?/ I don’t know when, we’ll get together then.

Other disastrous Dad ditties to avoid:

  • Everclear’s “Father Of Mine” which goes: Father of mine/ Tell me where do you sleep/ With the children you abandoned/ And the wife I saw you beat.

  • And Neil Young’s ballad “Old Man,” unless you want Dad to think it Doesn’t mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.
