SOTD: Put it there

Seeing as today is Father’s Day, I thought I would write about a favorite song about relationships with your father. The song is called Put It There and is written and sung by Paul McCartney. It’s on the Flowers In The Dirt album, which was re-released recently. Listen to the song below.

The lyrics are as follows: 

Give me your hand
I'd like to shake it
I want to show you I'm your friend
You'll understand
If I can make it clear
It's all that matters in the end

Put it there
If it weights a ton
That's what a father says to his young son
I don't care
If it weights a ton
As long as you and I are here, put it there
Long as you and I are here, put it there

If there's a fight
I'd like to fix it
I hate to see things go so wrong
The darkest night
And all it's mixed emotions
Are getting lighter sing along
 

I love the song because it's so simple yet has depth and meaning. It's a favorite song of mine off Flowers In The Dirt and overall a favorite by Paul in general.
