DON’T TRICK YOUR DAD!
I caught a frog,
I knew what to do
I put it in Dad’s shoe!
When he got dressed, (what a surprise!)
Boy! He jumped a mile! (opened up his eyes!)
I really laughed but he didn’t smile! So,
Chorus: Don’t trick your Dad, (Don’t trick your Dad!)
If you fool him he’ll get mad (Don’t trick)
Don’t trick your Dad or he’ll get mad!
I told my Pop, he could have a kiss (he turned his cheek!)
I licked him like a fish! (you left a streak!)
He was upset (you tricked him bad!)
Told me to leave (don’t trick your Dad!)
He wiped his wet face on his sleeve! So,
Chorus: Don’t lick your Dad, (Don’t like your Dad!)
If you fool him he’ll get mad (Don’t lick!)
Don’t lick your Dad or he’ll get mad!
Bridge: Oooo-oooooooooo, don’t lick your Dad, oooooo!
Ooooooooo-oooooooooo, don’t trick your Dad, ooooo!
So if y’feel like foolin’, remember this one rule, an’
Don’t blow your father’s cool,
Just remember he loves you!!
At supper time, (what did you do?)
I went too far, I told my Dad
“Mommy wrecked the car!” (ooooh nooo!!)
He choked on his food, (asparagus!)
He got all red! (oh, what a fuss!)
I said “April Fool’s” he said “Go to bed!”
Remember that he loves you, (even when he’s mad!)
