Music my dad sings

My dad occationally sings bits of music from his youth, back before he lost most of his chromatic hearing. It's always odd to finally hear the actual pieces.

The "mellow rock" music station at the Online Cafe that I'm sitting in right now is playing one of them. "Have I Told You Lately, That I Love You?"

Update. I am now amused that it is playing a cover sung by a female vocalist of "Poor Poor Pitiful Me". A moment of research in the Covers Project database suggests that it's an old recording by Linda Ronstadt. Didn't people actually listen to the lyrics?
