I’m a Cool Dad Lyrics:
I’m gonna live til I die, never die til I live
Never give up, always looking for my next gig
Can I get a penny with a microphone, I’m feeling like a winner
No one ever knew me when I was a beginner
Now I’m flying like an eagle, never begging like a seagull
Always chilling like a beagle, cashing checks that are legal
And I’m feeling kind of regal like a king and his sheeple
I’m looking in the haters eyes, forgiving all the people
I’ve been beat down, thrown away, I never gave up
I’m like Rudy, Rocky, Terminator, never lose my luck
I don’t care what you’ve seen or believe what you’ve heard
To Me, impossible is not a real word.
Riding my whips, rolling down the strip- cuz I’m a cool dad
Checka mic 1, checka 2 , check 3
Checkin on the mic and I’m about to get funky
I’m the Diamond, kick it up with a little reggae styling
Nothing is impossible, if you face your freakin fear
Will you make it possible.
kickin it with the boom
I’m like a diamond tipped needle
Popping quitters like balloons.
Here is a fun video of Derek Clark being interviewed with Right This Minute, a national TV Show.
Derek Clark states “Music has dramatically changed my life. Music was the vehicle which allowed me to open up and dream. Dreams can give you hope, and hope was the only thing I needed at my darkest points in life. Music has given me the ability to express feelings which otherwise would have remained locked in my soul. Music was the key to the cell that I was trapped in. Music can be very therapeutic for the broken down soul as it can heal and re-energize. Music has taught me appreciation for the little things. My music gives form to the feelings I have inside. When I am inspired to write, it comes from some deep place in my soul. Singing and playing music helps build confidence and greatly increases self esteem. It creates self worth and gives the performer the ability to express their feelings. Music can be very therapeutic for the broken down soul as it can heal and re-energize. Quite simply, music is a powerful force.”
Reserve Derek Clark for your next event and start believing that there truly are NO LIMITS.
Derek Clark Bio:
Derek Clark’s life is one of resilience and redemption. As a child he suffered unthinkable child abuse, abandonment and emotional distress before being turned over to the psychiatric hospital at age five. His 13 years in the San Francisco bay area foster care system reflected an early life of humiliation, aggression, emotional distress, overwhelming anxiety and being wrongfully labeled. Eventually, with the help of foster parents and mentors he defied the artificial limitations imposed upon him.
Derek knows first hand how to cope with adversity and overcoming hardship. His past has never held him back from accomplishing what he set his heart and mind to.
Derek is an inspiring speaker/trainer, the Ambassador for the Foster Care Alumni of America, a featured expert on CNN Headline News and The Ricki Lake Show. Google has ranked Derek #1 “inspiring motivational speaker” out of 36 million listings and is also ranked #2 for “stories on never giving up” out of 1.1 billion results. He is the author of six books including “Never Limit Your Life” and the “I Will Never Give Up” book series.
As a speaker, author and singer/songwriter, Derek has spoken and performed his music from Australia to Canada including a President of the United States. His true-life trials and personal triumphs have inspired organizations with his message of hope and unwavering perseverance.
His maxim is to make no excuses. He has turned his situation from a victim to a victor, equipping him with the Wisdom and the Will to never give up.
