I ran into an old friend of mine the other day
We hadn't seen each other for quite a while
What he had to say to me hit me pretty hard
‘Cause I think a lot of folks get started this way, he said

"I thought it would be so easy, another one night stand
She seemed so warm and willin’, right in the palm of my hand
Now it’s three months ago last Wednesday since I woke up in her bed
Lord I think I love her but it scares me half to death"

"‘Cause you know I’m a rake and a ramblin’ man
Free as an eagle flies, well look at me now and tell me true
Do I look like a daddy to you? Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?"

"Now she’s feelin’ sick in the mornin’s, she can’t get into her jeans
I spent my last ten dollars, bought her a second hand ring
I start to work next Monday ‘cause I just can’t let her down
I've had me some good times but it’s all changin’ now"

"You know I’m a rake and a ramblin’ man
Free as an eagle flies, well look at me now and tell me true
Do I look like a daddy to you? Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?"

"You know I’m a rake and a ramblin’ man
Free as an eagle flies, well look at me now and tell me true
Do I look like a daddy to you? Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?"
