Wher's my daddy?Have I done something wrong?
But I'll be good ,if he just comes home
And I will stand so proud and say,
I'm a big girl now daddy I wont get in your way
I wont be mean any more ,wont kick and scream;
Or fall to the floor,Iwont whine or fuss and get you upset
I'm abig girl now daddy ,you'll be surprised I bet;
I can sit quietly while at play,daddy I promise ;
I wont get in your way;
If you come home,I'll be at my best
Am I big enough to make such a request?
Mommy said that you're up in Heaven
'Cause your name was oneof them given,
But if you told Jesus,that you couldnt stay;
And I'd ask for you back at night when I pray,
Then back to our house you will arrive-!
See mama, I told you my daddy was alive.
