Three strikes and your out my Dad used to say
On the ball field where baseball we would play
And I'd love to hear him that big belly man
With a cheer in his voice that made me glad
Don't give up yet he would say my sport
You're the cutest of buttons because you are short
Thank you Dad! I would say and mean it for real
I love it when my Dad is here
But the day I am thinking I am running so fast
All the bases I am running passed
But then I trip! And then I fall!
And my whole team and the other team sees it all!
I start to well up with tears but my Dad says it's fine
I just need to tie my shoes better next time
So every morning when I reach for the lace
I see my Dad's shining like sunshine face!
That is why tying my shoes is my favorite time
The time that I think of and makes me want to rhyme
It's because of my Dad! I love him so much
Thank you Dad! Thank you a bunch!
