He walks into the room and everybody looks his way,
      He is a handsome older man with just a touch of gray.
      He carries himself perfect with an air of elegance,
      Not proud or arrogant like some that makes the difference.

      The restaurant we are meeting at is lit so very dim,
      But I can see the other ladies starring straight at him.
      He is so neat and well dressed looking like a movie star,
      And all the ladies watch him as he stops there by the bar.

      I see the other ladies watching as he stops to linger,
      And watch them poke their lady friends and gesture with their finger.
      I am so proud as I sit here and watch their little show,
      Iím the one heís asking for but right now they donít know.

      I know heíll make me feel so proud when they know heís with me,
      What they donít know is heís much more than just what they can see.
      Oh yes, he is a handsome man as all the ladies know,
      But he is so much more to me than what appearance shows.

      He is the greatest man Iíve known and treats me tenderly,
      But sometimes in the past he felt he had to punish me.
      I understand his methods now and all has turned out well,
      These ladies who are watching him should hear what I could tell.

      And now heís meeting me today and it will be my treat,
      The ladies are still whispering and wonder whom youíll meet.
      You start walking to the table as you wave at me,
      And as I smile I also feel their eyes full of envy.

      The whispers increase now as toward me you begin to walk,
      I smile because youíre twice my age and now I know theyíll talk.
      She is so lucky they will say Iíve heard it all before,
      But what they donít know is this handsome man is so much more.

      Heís everything a man could be and he is my hero,
      And as you reach the table I let everybody know.
      How proud I am that youíre with me and youíre a total winner,
      I proudly say, "itís Fatherís Day hi Dad, Iím buying dinner!"
