A mi papi is another Spanish Father’s Day song. It is a little longer, with present tense verbs in the yo and tú forms. These are the lyrics and you can hear the song in this video: A mi papi on YouTube
Porque tú eres el mejor del mundo
Y a quien quiero yo más en la vida,
Tú trabajas mucho cada día
para darme una casa y comida.
Con alegría te voy a cantar,
Con alegría te voy a abrazar
Y en éste día yo te voy a dar mi corazón. (bis)
Porque entiendes todos mis problemas,
Alegrías también tristezas,
Porque siempre tú conmigo juegas
y a la calle a pasear me llevas.
