A Bunny

Every Father's Day I hear the same old story,
But if fathers are so great, why don't they get any glory?
You hear about their sons and the great things they've done,
But the fathers of great men are quickly forgotten.

Rockefeller created gas stations,
Washington gave birth to a nation,
Bell revolutionized communication,
King ended segregation

Well I know all these men and the good things they've done,
But I don't know any of the men who call these men son,
So if fatherhood is the most important job by far,
Then why don't I know who the fathers of the founding fathers are?

Well I can only think of a couple of men,
Who were famous but had dads who were awesomer than them,
Just think about it for a minute or two,
Try to think of more than Jesus and Hank Williams Jr.

And I'd be a fool if I didn't mention,
Dads who raised kids who happened not to be men,
The great women of this world were once little girls,
And were polished by their fathers into powerful pearls.

Earheart was the queen of aviation,
Nightingale saved hospitalization,
And Curie discovered radiation,
And Tubman fought for emancipation.

Well I know all of these women and the places they've been,
But I don't even know the names of the men who fathered them,
So if fatherhood is the most important job by far,
Then why don't I know who the fathers of the founding fathers are?

We spend a lot more time talking about,
The dads of the guys who turned out to be louts,
We only talk about the dad when the parenting is bad,
And the kid ends up murdering half of Leningrad.

So it's obvious good dads are underrated,
So I guess they need a day to be appreciated,
Which is why we're here today, I think we all should say,
Thanks to the men who made great men and women great.

Jack Daniels perfected distillation,
And Disney pioneered animation,
And Edison brought electrification,(but the internet's a Tesla fan)
And Gandhi fought for liberation.

Well I know all these men and the good things they've done,
But I don't know any of the men who call these men son,
So if fatherhood is the most important job by far,
Then why don't I know who the fathers of the founding fathers are?
Why don't I know who the fathers of the founding fathers are?
Why don't I know who the fathers of the founding fathers are?

Speaking: Thank you, dads. And most especially thanks to my dad, who through his sweat and blood and, yes, other bodily fluids, created the vlogbrothers. Thank you, dad, and thank you to all the dads out there. Happy Father's Day.

Text: Got an underappreciated dad? Send this to him to say thank you.
