Dad’s Shoulder

Standing on the shoulders of the giants we called Dad

We were happy with a gentle lean as we grew older

They grew shorter as we grew taller

While in our own footsteps we were bolder

In every street from Shang Hai to Sydney

We heard that there were absent Dads, stay at home Dads

Go out to work Dads, never seen before Dads

We knew we were the lucky ones

Who did not have to go digging the Gold fields of love
