I Just Forgot

My Daddy’s always mad at me,
His temper’s always hot,
He says, “You never listen,”
I say, “I just forgot.”

He’s always busy working,
He never wants to play,
He says, “I have to clean the house,”
And that seems to take all day!

He’s tired in the evening,
But always makes the time,
To help me with my homework,
So I guess I shouldn’t mind.

Sometimes we go for hikes,
He teaches me lots of things,
Like how the forest lives,
And why a bird sings.

My Dad and I sing silly songs,
And joke around a lot,
Now why was I mad at him?
I guess I just forgot.
