Here I stand before you, ready to lift you up,
A sad frown I will shoo, as I make you say yup.

People everywhere use me every day; dads especially love what I am.
Please listen to what I have to say, your scoff and groan is my kind of jam.

Yet one day you'll tell about me to others, thinking you're clever.
