The only one I can think of is "Oh my Papa" that was sung by Eddie Fisher

"My Heart Belongs To Daddy" sung by Mary Martin in Leave It To Me, 1938 Broadway musical written by Cole Porter...Marilyn Monroe also sang it
Just found the lyrics:

While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
Cause my heart belongs to Daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To dine on my fine Finnan Haddie
I just adore, his asking for more
But my heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, DAAAAD

So I want to warn you laddie
Though I know that you're perfectly swell
That my heart belongs to Daddy
Cause my Daddy, he treats it so well

While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
Cause my heart belongs to Daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To cook up some hot enchilada
Though Spanish rice is all very nice
My heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, DAAAAD

So I want to warn you laddie
Though I know that you're perfectly swell
That my heart belongs to Daddy
Cause my Daddy, he treats it so well

Father & Son, mentioned above by swolf, is one of my very favorites.

I do like Daughter, by Loudon Wainright III. I'd forgotten about this song, until I heard it playing a few years ago during the closing credits of Knocked Up. As the father of 3 daughters, it strikes a chord.

Another good one is Taylor Swift's The Best Day. If you haven't heard it, click the link and have your Kleenex nearby.

One of my favorites too. When I was younger, I agreed with the son's part. Now that I have boys of my own, I can see the father's side of it also.

A few years ago, a friend gave me a Flaming Lips CD to listen to (I had never heard the group before). One of the songs - Flight Test - seemed so familiar, and it took me a minute to realize it sounded like Father and Son.

I checked it out online, and sure enough, Cat Stevens had sued the group for copyright infringement and they settled out of court.
