Drab Dad Ditties To Avoid On Father’s Day (Jun. 15)

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Be careful what songs you dedicate to Dad this Father’s Day (Jun. 15), or his special day could be ruined.

Many famous Dad ditties could actually hurt Pop’s pride.

For example, Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s In The Cradle” is a drab Daddy ditty with the cruel chorus: When you coming home, Dad?/ I don’t know when, we’ll get together then, Son/ You know we’ll have a good time then.

Steer clear of Everclear’s “Father Of Mine” because it includes the bitter lyrics: Father of mine/ Tell me where do you sleep/ With the children you abandoned/ And the wife I saw you beat.

Avoid playing the Doors’ “The End,” since anyone would agree that the lyrics Father?/ Yes, Son?/ I want to kill you, could really put a damper on Dad’s big day.

Finally, Good Charlotte’s sad Daddy sing-along to “Emotionless” should also be avoided, with lyrics like: Hey Dad/ I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes/ But those are just a long, lost memory of mine.
