Sing me a song again, Daddy
Sing me a happy verse.
Teach me those clever lines you sang
As you carried me on your shoulders.
Sing me that hymn that you so loudly
Sang in church with mom.
Sing it again to me and fill me
With all your words of wisdom.

Comforting words of love when I
Would get home from school in tears.
Somehow your songs have stayed within me
Down through all the years.
Once when my younger heart was broken
Your shoulder was there to cry on.
Sing me those songs I know will linger
Long after you have gone.

I am standing at the threshold
Of a chapter in my life
I am asking for your blessing
As I'm about to be the wife
Of a man I know who loves me
And I'm proud to be his bride.
Dad the time has come for me to leave your side.

So, sing me a song again, Daddy.
Sing me a lullaby.
Wrap me inside your arms, Daddy,
'Though this is not goodbye.
Your songs will live forever
In my heart. When times get rough
The ones I'll most remember
Are your songs of love.


Your songs will live forever
In my heart. When times get rough


The ones I'll most remember
Are your songs of love.

    This song really makes me cry everytime i hear it. I won't forget my father's advises before.. Although he's gone, he'll be in our hearts forever. He wanted everyone of us to be in the right path of life, kept telling us to treasure our lives, be a good wife to our husbands and a good mother to our children like what he has done for us. I really miss u papa. :(:(

    This is a girls song whos about to be wed and bidding goodbye and asking for his blessings.. This reminds her of her childhood with the parents esp. Closest to her father... At the same time reassuring that everything will be fine.. That a father's love could be equated to a husband's love,..

    I regret wasting time hating my father for his imperfections. I should've been more open minded and understanding to consider that aside from his imperfections, he still tried to be a father to us and i dearly know that he loves us more than what he is showing... He just wouldn't let us feel that... Maybe because of the unattachment.

    This song makes me realized the love of my fathe to me, his sacrifices to us his children is uncomparable. He is the greatest man for us! I hope someday i can repay what he has done for us, not in material things but to be a good person that he wanted me to be. I love you tatay! I miss you so much! I'll be home soon...
