I don't know why I like him, I just only know I do
I don't know why I trust him, I just know his heart is true
I don't know why he's more a man than any man I know
I don't know how I know the man's for real but I still know
The man is more than what meets the eye
He is worn and weary from life
He is rugged but he's got style
The man has got what matters inside

Weary, yes he must get weary but he doesn't say
But you can read between the lines that wind along his face
The man has got his memories that he hides inside his mind
And you can see the sadness in the eyes they hide behind

The man is more than what meets the eye
He is worn and weary from life
He is rugged but he's got style
The man has got what matters inside

Love him, yes I've always loved him and I always will
He holds a place in my heart no one else could ever fill
He's always been my hero, the best friend I've ever had
The man is something special and I'm proud that he's my dad

The man is more than what meets the eye
He is worn and weary from life
He is rugged but he's got style
The man has got what matters inside
