My 2 Daddies (Can Beat Up Your 1)

April 20, 2011 | By Brent Almond | DAD STUFF, MAKING MEMORIES

One of the workshops I attended at Design Ranch included one with copywriter extraordinaire, Wayne Geyer (who, come to find out, also happens to have been a high school classmate for 2 weeks). I chose JJ as my inspiration, and what he might be saying ’bout Daddy and Papa if he could sing Country songs… (I’m thinking this will end up being a tee shirt as well)

My 2 Daddies (Can Beat Up Your 1)

Ever since I was a boy
‘Bout 2 or 3 months ago
People stop and stare at me
Everywhere I go

It’s not because my ears are big
Or that my skin is green
It’s cuz I got the 2 best Daddies
That you’ve ever seen

Y’see most kids got a mom and dad
And that’s just fine and dandy
But having me 2 awesome Dads
Comes in pretty handy

I got the nicest clothes in school
And I’ve been to Paris, France
So all those kids with regular folks
Well, they don’t stand a chance

Chorus:
You better think twice before pickin’ on me
And thinking we’re not a real family
I’m the luckiest boy and a fortunate son
My 2 Daddies can beat up your 1

I got 1 Dad to teach me ball
And take me fishin’ in the lake
I got another Dad who bakes a pie
Better’n Martha makes

You say your Daddy’s big and strong
And that he’s six foot four
But you put my 2 Dads together
And they’re about six foot more

Chorus:
You better think twice before pickin’ on me
And thinking we’re not a real family
I’m the luckiest boy and a fortunate son
My 2 Daddies can beat up your 1

Bridge:
Don’t you worry, don’t you tease
Just keep your feathers and tar
I hope I grow up to be half the man
My 2 Daddies are

Now some folks may get fretful
Or not understand my life
But my parents love each other
There just ain’t no wife

I never did get breast-fed
And no one sits down to pee
We all wear the pants in our house
And we’re as happy as can be

Chorus:
You better think twice before pickin’ on me
And thinking we’re not a real family
I’m the luckiest boy and a fortunate son
My 2 Daddies can beat up your 1

      Ooh, good idea! I just need someone to write out the music for me… know any good guitar players/composers? I’ve been developing a tune in my head…

    Brent, that is simply beautiful!!
    It brought tears to my eyes!

    • Brent M. Almond says:

      Thanks James, that’s very sweet of you to say! I’ll admit I choked up a few times too as I was reading it aloud to myself.

    My talented sons & grandsons never cease to amaze me! You may have unearthed a third career (after design & fathering). I love it!

    • Brent M. Almond says:

      I’m not sure I could handle 3 at once, but thanks for the vote of confidence! But I’ll be sure and let you know before we up and move to Nashville! 🙂

    That’s so awesome! Made my month…and the picture is KICK*@$ too!! 🙂

    • Brent M. Almond says:

      I’ll show you all the outtakes sometime. It was like wrestlin’ a greased pig (or some other Southern expression) to get him to pose in the hat!

  5. Sharisse says:

    OMG. I just now read this. Best. thing. Ever!

    I am crackin’ up! You are comin’ to Nashville to cut this baby. Incidentally, I know a great CD designer that lives in town. yehaw!

    Brilliant!

    • Brent M. Almond says:

      Sharisse:

      I have totally thought about recording it — if for nothing else than for Jon. I sent the link to your brother as well — do you know if he saw it? Maybe it can go on Jake Leg Stompers’ next CD! 🙂

  6. […] originally wrote the lyrics as part of a copywriting workshop. I was attending a design conference in the Texas hill country, […]
