You showed me everything,
you took me by the hand

Puppy dogs and Lincoln Logs
and castles made of sand

You gave me the courage
to spread my newborn wings

Like Mayonnaise and Marmalade
and all the spreadable things

So I guess you are my hero
and there’s something you should know,

I wanna make it clear,
so I’m gonna sing it slow:

If you aren’t a man
and my father, too

I’d buy you a diamond ring
and then I’d marry you.
