'Daddy's Beard' - the debut single by Groovy Conker

Today O. wrote a song for me totally unprompted.  I was very touched, not just because she wrote me a song, but because of the lyrical content as well.  She is only 4 years old and it is brilliant.  If she keeps going like this, my dream of retiring at the age of 50 could well become reality.

I have decided to therefore pencil in a release date of March 2023 for this debut single (please put it in your diaries now) - 2 years short of my 50th birthday.  O. will be 16 by this time (which I believe is old enough for pop stardom considering you can enter X-Factor and it was also the age Britney Spears signed her first record deal - and it did her no harm did it?!) and this will therefore give her a couple of years to build up a fanbase by touring extensively (and therefore not seeing any of her friends) and I can live off the royalties for years to come after that.

Oh and, of course, the song will be released under the moniker 'Groovy Conker'.  If you want to read about the background to this name, you can do so here - musodad's band name game

Anyway, without further ado here is the song.  Please do not attempt to plagiarise it, this blog post is dated so you won't win in a Court of Law (but we could maybe come to some kind of out of court agreement).

If you hadn't already guessed, the song is called 'Daddy's Beard' (I'd just like to point out that I don't actually have a beard but please don't split hairs, she is only 4 for crying out loud!).  Anyway, here goes :

"Daddy, you are nicer than an ice cream sundae.
You have a hairy beard.
I love you more than a lovely princess".

So there it is - told you it was great, didn't I?  I'm going to lay down some Early Learning Centre keyboard over the top of it this weekend and probably add a ukulele solo or two. 

If there are any A&R people reading, please either leave your details in the comments box below or contact me via Twitter - @musodad

I look forward to hearing from you...


  1. If I lay down a funky bass line (yes I play bass - badly) and you bang out some beatz I reckon it's a sure fire winner.

    Does this mean that you are going to re-brand yourself as 'lovelier-than-a-princess-dad'? I think it has a nice ring to it...

  2. Bless her, I love it when they make songs up for us... mine sings that she loves me more than poo...!!! You need to harness that talent and I'll be the first to knock on your door in 2023

  3. Oh this is so, so sweet! Make sure you record her singing it and play it to her on her 21st birthday. :)

  4. Hey, it is looking like girl bands are the way forward. Care to broker a deal for O and GG to sing together? She's got some lyrical ideas and she's got da moves as well - I'm thinking Tiny Mix?

  5. Thanks for the comments all. Actually Mummy, I have an idea for Tiny Mix's debut album. Will DM you on Twitter - don't want Simon Cowell to find out (he regularly reads 'musodad' y'know!) as he might steal it. :)

  6. Wow! love the idea of little O being an artist. And you will be such a proud dad! How cute are her lines! Love you more than a lovely princess! Sweet!
