Who's the greatest singer in the land (you are)
Who's the world's most sweetest kindest man (you are)
Who's gonna give you some ice-cream
If you sing this thing just right (you are) oh outside
Now who's the handsomest man in Tennessee (you are)
Who's the trunk of this old family tree (you are)
And when ye kids get old enough to work
Who's gonna live off you (you are) yeah that's true

You are the world's greatest father (thank you kids)
No matter what you say you're never wrong (you're right)
And it's so nice of you to bother (it ain't no bother)
To teach us this equal silly song

Now who's the one who watches while you grow (you are)
Who's the one who whipes your dirty nose (you are)
Who's gobnna treat you better than any daddy ever did (you are)
Oh thank you kids

You are the world's greatest father
No matter what you say you're never wrong (you got there right)
And it's so nice of you to bother (it ain't no bother)
To teach us this equal silly song (just keep singin' now)

Who's the one that buys you all your clothes (you are)
Who's the one who let ye sing on all his shows (you are)
Who's gonna make more money off you than any daddy ever did (you are)
Thank you kids
