lyrics

When night is creepin' and I should be sleepin' in bed
If you were peepin', you'd find that I'm weepin' instead
Well, my loving daddy left his baby again
He said he'd come back but he forgot to say when

Night after night, I'm cryin'
Daddy won't you please come home
Daddy won't you please come home, I'm so lonesome
No one can fill that favourite chair
Home isn't home when you're not there
No need to knock, the door is open for you
Even the clock keeps tickin'
Daddy won't you please come home
Daddy do you have to roam so very long
There's lots of other new sheiks who would like to be sheikin'
I haven't slipped yet, but I'm liable to weaken
Daddy, Daddy won't you please come home.
