Abstract

[Verse 1]
I just can remember my mother,
Angels one day, took her away,
You took her place with a smile on your face,
That’s why I’m happy to say:

[Chorus ]
Daddy, dear old daddy,
You’ve been more than a daddy to me,
You might have gone with the boys ev’ry night,
You gave them up just to bring me up right;
Daddy, dear old daddy
Way above she can see,
You were more than a dad,
You’re the best friend I had;
Daddy, you’ve been a mother to me.
Daddy, dear old daddy,
You’ve been more than a daddy to me,
You might have held someone else on your knee,
You keep a place there for no one but me;
Daddy, dear old daddy,
Way above she can see,
You’ve been more than a pal,
You’ve been more than a gal,
Daddy, you’ve been a mother to me.

[Verse 2]
The leaves of the autumn falling,
Deep in your eye, are winter skies;
You were my friend, always there to defend,
I’ll be your boy, till the end:
(to Chorus)
