Oh, momma, where's my daddy?
Why don't he ever come around?
Momma, where's my daddy?
Is he nowhere to be found?

Oh, momma, where's my daddy?
Can we call him on the phone?
Does he ever think about us?
Or does he have a heart of stone?

Momma, what's the matter?
Why's there water in your eyes?
Do you need him as much as I do?
I love you momma, please don't cry

Where does he come from?
What does he look like?
Does he have a face like mine
And is he ever comin' back here
And why'd he leave us here behind?

When did you and daddy get married?
Was it 19 and 83?
Son, your dad and I were married
But he just wasn't married to me

Oh, momma, where's my daddy?
Why don't he ever come around?
Momma, where's my daddy?
Is he nowhere to be found?
