"Lately I've been spending lots of time with my kid
Telling him stories
About the things that we did
When we were a family
Long time ago
I've answered his questions
Till I'm blue in the face
Wished all that hurt in him
I could erase
But I tell him the truth
Cause he ain't to young to know

Single father
Part time mother
When I'm not one
Then I'm the other
You used to be
My full time lover
Now I'm a single father
And a part time mother

I spend every minute
I can with my boy
There's no doubt about it
He's my pride and joy
Someday he will grow up
And I won't have him no more
Some things I just find
Too hard to explain
So we go to McDonald's
Or I buy him a train
And we go put it together
On the living room floor

Such is the life
Of a single father
He says "Daddy explain
If it's not too much bother
While it's just you and me
Living here in this home"
I don't understand it
And neither does he
Why there's just two
When there should be three of us
Sharing this moment
Lord I feel so alone

Single father
Part time mother
When I'm not one
Then I'm the other
You used to be
My full time lover
Now I'm a single father
And a part time mother

You used to be (You used to be)
My full time lover (Yeah ya used to be. Ya you used to)
Now I'm a single father(Be-----)
And a part time mother(Ohhhhh)

Now I'm a single father (Ooooooh)
And a part time mother
