Dearest Daddy with your songs
Do you hope to right your wrongs
You can't undo what has been done
To all your daughters and your son
The facts are in and we have found
That basically you're not around

Dearest Daddy, try as you might
You sing of my mother and me
Somewhat sentimentally
You sing of a father and son
When all you do from him is run
You like to think that things are okay
By singing things ythat you should say

Dearest Daddy with your songs
Do you hope to right your wrongs

Darling Daughter can't you see
The guy singing the songs ain't me
He's someone people with I was
What I can't do this dude does
And if the songs seem slightly pat
I know life's messier than that
They're just songs and life is real
They're just my version how I feel

And you don't feel the same I know
How it went down or it should go
My mistakes you label wrongs
Iexpiate my guilt with songs
Why I'm uptight or not around
Those whys continue to confound

Darling Daughter can't you see
The guy singing the songs ain't me
