5 of the greatest songs written about dads

There are plenty of ways to honor our pops on Father's Day, but nothing says "I love you" like a song.

We put together five of our favorite jams written about dads. Pick one and send it to your father. We bet you'll make him cry.

Cat Stevens - "Father and Son"
It's not time to make a change, just sit down, take it slowly. You're still young, that's your fault, there's so much you have to go through. Find a girl, settle down, if you want you can marry. Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

Eric Clapton - "My Father's Eyes"
Just a toerag on the run. How did I get here? What have I done? When will all my hopes arise? How will I know him? When I look in my father's eyes. My father's eyes.

Will Smith - "Just the Two of Us"
From the first time the doctor placed you in my arms I knew I'd meet death before I'd let you meet harm. Although questions arose in my mind, would I be man enough Against wrong?

Dan Fogelberg - "Leader of the Band"
An only child. Alone and wild. A cabinet maker's son. His hands were meant for different work. And his heart was known to none.

Darius Rucker - "It Won't Be Like This For Long"
He didnt have to wake up. He'd been up all nite. Lay'n there in bed listen'n. To his new born baby cry. He makes a pot of coffee. He splashes water on his face. His wife gives him a kiss and says it's gonna be OK.
