If there was ever a man
Who was generous, gracious and good
That was my dad
The man
A human being so true
He could live like a king
'Cause he knew

And always stand by me

If there was ever a man

'Cause he knew
The real pleasure in life

To be devoted to
And always stand by me
So I'd be unafraid and free

If there was ever a man
Who was generous, gracious and good
That was my dad
The man, The man
