Tommy's daddy kept a six-pack in the fridge
We thought we were old enough to do what daddies did
It didn't take us long to go from drunk to really sick
When I walked in my house I stumbled just a bit

First Chorus:
You play it cool but it's no use
Dad ain't no fool and that's the truth
Chewin' gum can't cover up that smell
You can't hide one single thought
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well

We lost Daddy in 1999
I took care of everybody's pain except for mine
And then one night my wife took my face in her hands
She said, "I think it's time you cry for your old man"

Second Chorus:
You play it cool but it's no use
She ain't no fool and that's the truth
And my teardrops finally fell
You can't hide one single thought
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well

I could probably do more to help my fellow man
But life gets busy and I hope God understands
Someday when I get time I'll do more than my share
Funny how I'm thinkin' this sittin' in my easy chair

Third Chorus:
You play it cool but it's no use
God ain't no fool and that's the truth
And he won't let you fool yourself
You can't hide one single thought
If you try you'll just get caught
When somebody knows you that well
When somebody knows you that well
