It happened only yesterday,
A young man came upon
My porch to get permission,
To take my daughter to the prom.

I told this boy I'm sorry,
I wouldn't loan him my old Ford,
Much less my baby daughter,
To go to the corner store!

My reasoning is simple,
Why I'd submit to neither,
When I was young and rowdy,
I might throw a rod in either!

At the risk of having her hate me, I hope it's a LONG time before your daughter can date if waiting until after your wake is the criteria! LOL

LOL... nothing like remembering how YOU were as a teenager to scare you silly at the thought of her going out with one of those teenage-boy-type critters... right??? LOL

I was following you right up until that last line! What did you mean by "I might throw a rod in either"?

This is the exact reason why your daughter and I have kept our feelings secret. We knew you wouldn't understand. Talk to you soon, er, dad?

when it comes to dating daughters
you're on the faithful track
a father does what he must do
to keep her from the sack

but in your undertaking
you're a reapin what you've sowed
it aint  a daughter you've to lose
but the gaining of new Toe's
