Sunday Song Lyric:
Michael Rosman recommended Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter" for Father's Day, and I can't think of a better song for today. It begins:
If you leap awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second
You can't remember where you are
Just open your window
And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain
Where we counted every falling star

I believe the light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever
And though I can't guarantee
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I'm gonna stand guard
Like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
And never leave till I leave you
With a sweet dream in your head
The song, written for The Wild Thornberrys and was nominated for an Oscar. Here's the video and a live performance. Happy Father's Day.
A lovely choice, Jonathan. Thanks!

Somewhere a Monica is humming:-

I've got a crush on O, sweetie pie
All the day and night-time hear me sigh
I never had the least notion
That I could fall with so much emotion

I wonder...could you coo, now, could you care
For a cozy White House we could share
The world will pardon my mush
'cause I have got a crush, Obama, on you.

Of course, the father's perspective is found in John Lennon's song, "Beautiful Boy."

And as a father, it is the song I thought of on Father's Day
