My Dad, who has been hard of hearing for about as long as I can remember, recently invested in hearing aids. So I wrote him a little song for Christmas to celebrate his newfound sense, affectionately entitled, "I Liked You Better Deaf." Enjoy and share! If you like this, check out my other channel for comedy: http://www.youtube.com/user/BdropsProductions The lyrics, for those asking: There used to be a time, it was rather recently When I'd play something on the stereo And mom would say "Danny won't you turn that noise down" And you'd say, "it's already very low" Seemed that I could always count on you To come and take my side When I'd set the volume up at 62 And someone else wanted it at 35 But since you found out that your ears are micable I have to say it's made you just a touch less likeable You never used to know the difference 'tween the bass and treble clef And it isn't hard to tell you that I liked you better deaf It used to be if I'd run out of anything to say I could just mumble and you'd usually go away It used to be what I was bringing to the conversation Was subject to a wider range of your interpretation But now I see That I must be Living in a nightmare, why it's every son's worst fear To have a dad forever clad with supersonic ears And I don't mean to tell you that I love you any less But there's no doubt about it that I liked you better deaf If I had once forgot to tell you something, say a chord I hadn't struck Like, "The mail's arrived" "I owe you five" "Run away" or "Duck!" Once I could have played it off without blood sweat or tears "I told you that," I'd tell you, and you'd blame it on your ears It once was undetectable but now it's ineffectual The odds are insurmountable and I am held accountable And you never would've noticed if I swore under my breath Now I don't have to shout to say I liked you better deaf See now I've reached a point where it's hard to make a rhyme But the song needs another verse to reach a fitting time And if I had been writing it for old deaf dad I might have left a phrase or two... unfinished But only the best for you and your new hearing You will find that every rhyme is aurally endearing And I'm afraid that now you've left me lyrically bereft But I only need five words to say I liked you better deaf
