"Mommy, Where's Daddy?" as written by and Paul Wright....
my sister was older so she knew what it was like
to hear you and mother argue and fight
i was two years old when you left this home
looking outside wondering where you’re gonna go?
i said

mommy, where’s daddy’ (daddy)
mommy, when’s daddy coming home?
mommy, where’s daddy’ (daddy)
mommy, when’s daddy coming home?

you took me by the hand you led me outside
said i’m gonna be a man someday, yea some ladies mr. right
we walked around the block and i started to cry
tears fell from my eyes, dad i need you in my life
in my life, in my life, in my life

and i cried when i saw your photograph
cuz i thought if you died then that’d be that’d be that

now dad i know you got a life of your own
but i want to talk can i call you on the phone’
i got a game tomorrow can you come watch me play’
i got so many thoughts i don’t know what to say
i love you i miss you i wish you were hear
i know in your heart you still want to be near
i thank you for loving me but where have you gone
oh dad oh dad to you i write this song
and i say

momma said that you left town (left town)
momma said you weren’t coming around
dad tell me where’d you go dad i really miss you
momma said that you left town (left town)
momma said you weren’t coming around
dad tell me where’d you go dad i really miss you

mommy, where’s daddy’ (daddy)
mommy, when’s daddy coming home?
mommy, where’s daddy’ (daddy)
mommy, when’s daddy coming home?
coming home’ coming home’ coming home? yea’

    General Commentsad song; highlights the irresponsibility and unfaithfulness of some adults that can shatter the youthful naiveté which believes such behavior is below their authority figures
