    It’s still “their song”. My daughter and I have a special song -“She’s Always17” by Harry Chapin.

    Although the lyrics aren’t quite in order (still great, Robb!), some mood music to accompany this strip:
    Sunny by Bobby Hebb on YouTube

    Prof: He’s no doubt been singing that song since she was born. No doubt telling her it was their special song the whole time, too.

    Since she knew it was her song, she must have known the words.

    That doesn’t mean it can’t be sung for his daughter, Sunny

    In the lasr panel on the middle row they are singing it together. Joe Cobb for Father of the Year! Every child should have such a dad.

    Nope! Bobby Hebb wrote it for you, Sunny. He was amazingly foresighted!

    Today’s Ziggy has a man coming to collect royalties for the song Ziggy sang in the shower. I was wondering about that when I read this strip.

    Good one, Imanartisthoney! My father had “My Pretty Girl” played on one of my birthdays. I used to sing "K-K-K-Katy to my granddaughter Katie when she was a tot. Special songs are really special for kids!

    In the movie Yankee Doodle Dandy George M. Cohan (played by James Cagney) comments that he was in his teens before he realized that the parades and fireworks on the 4th of July weren’t to celebrate his birthday.
