You're my love you're my angel
You're the girl of my dreams
I'd like to thank you for waiting patiently
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay

How I've waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay

It wasn't on a sunday (monday and tuesday went by)
It wasn't on a tuesday afternoon (all I could do was cry)
But I made a promise that you treasured
I made it back home to you

How I've waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay
Daddy's home to stay
I'm not a thousand miles away
Daddy's home to stay
I'm gonna be here come what may

    How about the dad has to work away from home and there were no other means and ways to provide for his family. Finally, he had the priviledge to work closer to home, resulting in him not having to work far from home any longer. He then shows appreciation for this very right he has to spend quality time with his family by writing and singing this song for them.

    I believe this song is about a drunken father abandoning his children for a life of drunkenness and shame. Finally after years of living in squalor he loses everything. With nowhere to go, he turns to the only people he knows that he can use to his advantage, the children he doesn't care about. He returns home acting as if he cares about his children but really all he wants is a bed to sleep in and some food to eat.
