Jennifer and Kate

This song is by Tom Paxton and appears on the album Comedians & Angels (2008).

There is this thing about Fathers
They live in their own zone
They tell you, "Hi, how are you?"
And then hand your mom the phone

At things like sharing feelings
Let's admit they are not great
But the lucky ones have daughters
Like my Jennifer and Kate

Just as they were as children
So they are as women now
So different from each other
Yet they're so alike somehow

Each one an individual
Each one a sovereign state
For there's no one else remotely
Like my Jennifer and Kate

I see their mother in the way
They love this family
They give this family the love
Their mother gives to me

It's Jennifer the scholar
Jennifer the mom
And when the world goes crazy
Then it's Jennifer the calm

While Kate the aunt from heaven
Serves up heaven on a plate
For their father thanks his angel
For his Jennifer and Kate

I see their mother in the way
They love this family
They give this family the love
Their mother gives to me

There is this thing about Fathers
They live in their own zone
They tell you, "Hi, how are you?"
And then hand your mom the phone

At things like sharing feelings
Let's admit they are not great
But the lucky ones have daughters
Like my Jennifer and Kate
Oh, their fathers thanks his angels
For his Jennifer and Kate
