Written by George Leon Pike, Sr.

1. Today as I think about Dad,

He’s the one that I called my old man,

I’m so sorry today, that I spoke of him that way,

I never knew just how much I cared for dad.

 

2. You’ve never, ever know such a friend,

As the one that you call your old man,

For whenever he’s gone, you’ll feel so left alone,

And then you’ll know for you’ll miss his helping hand.

 

3. Sometimes I feel lonely and sad,

Mem’ries bring precious thoughts of my dad,

For as I reminisce, you don’t know how much I miss,

Those happy days I once knew, friend, as a lad.

 

Chorus:

I’d never never do it again,

Call my dad the old man,

For that great God above,

Gave him for me to love,

And he’s something to cherish, my friend.

 

 

1. I wish I could see Dad again,

He’s the one that I called my old man,

I never knew until the day,

That my Dad passed away,

How much that I loved my old dad.

 

2. You’ve never known such a friend,

As the one that you call your old man,

For whenever he’s gone,

You’ll feel so alone,

Oh, how you’ll miss his helping hand.

 

3. When he’s resting with Jesus above,

Then you’ll remember his love,

And you’ll feel so bad,

When you’ve lost your dad.

 

4. Sometimes when I’m lonely and sad,

Precious mem’ries bring thoughts of my Dad,

As I reminisce, oh-how much I miss,

Those days I once knew as a lad

 

CHORUS:

I’d never, never do that again,

Call my dad the old man,

Friend you don’t know how sad

Those words make your dad,

When you commit that great sin,

So don’t you ever do it again,

Call dear old dad, this old man,

For God up above,

Gave him for you to love,

And he’s something to cherish, my friend.
