Melissa Ferrick – Hello Dad lyrics

Hello daddy
Are you drunk again
I've been waiting on the back porch
Waiting to come in
N' good evening daddy
You are asleep again
Lying on the T. V. Couch
With you eyes hid under
Your rim
But you know that you can't
You can't fool me
I know that you still love me
N' I know that it ain't all of your fault
You're just a strong headed man
With a brittle-weak-heart
N' you're waiting, yes you are waiting
For your daddy
'Cause he's going to come and he's going to
Tear you apart
But why can't you hold me
Like the other the other daddies do
And why can't you love me
Like I was a part of you
Good-bye daddy
Guess that I'll be seeing you around
Because I am old enough to understand
But still too young... I am just too young... I am still too young
To know how
Hello daddy
Are you drunk again
I've been waiting on the back porch
Waiting on the back porch
I am still waiting on the back porch
To come in
