It means so much to our nation

To celebrate our Fatherís Day,

But Congress had to change it

And now itís called Presidentís Day.

I donít know what they were thinking

When they voted their way.

I believe it was more about business

Than respect for our Patriotís Day.

I donít know if they realize

What it means to our children

To honor our Fatherís Day,

Cause if they donít restore it

It will be forgotten with each passing day.

If we want to preserve our nation

And nurture patriotism in some way,

Congress had better restore

George Washingtonís Birthday.
