Carly Simon – Fairweather Father lyrics

(Carly Simon)

Fairweather father
Fairweather father
Doesn't like to hear the baby cry
Doesn't like to about the aches and pains
Of the day gone by
Of the day gone by

But the mother advertised as a bargain wife
She'd make things easy for the rest of his life
And to make herself more appealing
She'd think only of him and forget her own feelings

Fairweather father
Fairweather father
Wants his wife to be the truckdriver
Wants his wife to be the gardener
And still look like a Hollywood Starlet
And still look like a Hollywood Starlet

So the mother gets mad and she leaves town
That brings the father and the baby down
She wants the father to find her
Drinkin' orange pop in the seedy Greek diner

Fairweather father
Fairweather father
Gets her back and gets up in the night
Loves her so much and holds the baby tight
Ain't that enough to make you cry
Ain't that enough to make you cry

Fairweather father
Fairweather father
Doesn't like to hear the baby cry
Doesn't like to know about the aches and pains
Of the day gone by
Of the day gone by
