Nobody’s Dad!

path
The way, the truth and the life!

As I was quietly musing, one lonely Father’s Day,
I thought of sons and daughter, and how we used to play;
Alone as I was sitting, and quietly wondering why,
I find myself alone, just left alone to die.

I’m nobody’s Dad, I’m nobody’s Dad,
Just left alone and feeling so sad;
No daughter’s kisses, and none from the lads,
None of them want me, I’m nobody’s Dad.

Many fathers see their children, at least once a while,
It sure don’t cost them nuthin’ to give him just a smile;
But here I sit on Father’s Day, alone and sad and blue,
Just wondering what it is, this old Dad has got to do.

I’m nobody’s Dad, I’m nobody’s Dad,
Just left alone and feeling so sad;
No daughter’s kisses, and none from the lads,
None of them want me, I’m nobody’s Dad.

(For all the Dad’s who are lonely today, on ‘Father’s Day’ – And the message? Don’t forget your dear old Dad).

And my apologies to Hank Snow for murdering his lovely song!
