So let me tell you about a man. A man named Marty. Marty King. He's turning 58 today! Wow! He's one of the coolest guys I know. Not just because he's my dad. But because he's an awesome dad. And husband (to my mom), and father-in-law, and grandpa, and cook, and engineer, and teacher, and cook, and chef, and cook. Hope you like the song, Pops!
PS - We shot the song in only one take. Heath, the little guy, was getting too hot and had to go inside. Not sure if the heat was from the weather or those blazing harmonica solos!
Hey Marty, you're the King
It's more than just your name, so listen up, I'll tell you what I mean
Your wife, Mary Beth, says that you're the best
And a super dad, Julie and I can attest
K and J think you're an awesome father-in-law
And heath always loves to play with you, his Papa
And not to mention you've got some other skills
You're always working hard so you can pay the bills
With your jobs you have always excelled
From the JJ, Motorola, and the Baxter to the ATL
You've moved up the ladder to a dream career
Getting paid to fly to Munich and drink their beer
And and not to mention the food you cook,Lookout Betty Crocker, if you ever ever write a book!
From the hummus to the bread to the yearly sazitza
From the pico de gallo to the Marty King's pizza
From the chicken of the land and the salmon of the sea
From taking a steak and smoking it for jerky
Hey Marty, you're the King!
