Song Description

The song opens with an acknowledgment of the divorce situation where a dad hasn't talked to his kids for a long time but still thinks about them every day. The chorus encourages these dads to call their kids, don't put it off, to tell their kids that they love them.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written to encourage absentee divorced dads to reach out to their kids and call them, let them know that they care and love them. To me it's a tragedy that so many divorced dads lose contact with their kids. Just CALL YOUR KIDS!

Lyrics

You've both moved on but at one time you loved her.
Now you're divorced, she's taken the kids and moved away.
You haven't seen or talked to them in a long time
But they're in your heart ev'ry single day.

Call your kids, do it now, be a man, do the right thing
They need to know that you love them, and you always will.
Don't put it off another day, days turn into years
And don't be put off by your ex, yeah she's still mad as hell.
Stop what you're doin,' no more excuses, call your kids right now
It might be the most important thing you'll ever do.
Put yourself in their shoes, they just want their dad
So call your kids, do it now, and say I love you.

It's not their fault you fought with their mom and then you got divorced.
You never wanted to leave them but she won in court.
They need you in their lives, the job of a dad is never done
But you've got to be the grown up one.

Call your kids, do it now, be a man, do the right thing
They need to know that you love them, and you always will.
Don't put it off another day, days turn into years
And don't be put off by your ex, yeah she's still mad as hell.
Stop what you're doin,' no more excuses, call your kids right now
It might be the most important thing you'll ever do.
Put yourself in their shoes, they just want their dad
So call your kids, do it now, and say I love you.

Call your kids, it's never too late, let them know you care.
Call your kids, do it now, and say I love you.
Call your kids, it's never too late to reconnect.
Call your kids, do it now, and say I love you.
