Horace Silver - Song For My Father

(First Chorus)
This little song for my father
Does things that no other
Can do
As I sing it to you

It has a rhythm and rhyme
That will fasten his memory
In time
As his beauty shines through

For through my mind and soul
My heart will always hold
A special place for him
It's true

(Second Chorus)
We bow our heads and we pray
Every day's Father's Day
Let's review
All that he means to you

Our mother's love is real nice
But old Dad sacrificed
For us too
Let us give him his due
