Daddy Please

A little child looked at his Dad:
With big brown eyes oh so sad:
Daddy he said listen to me:
I have something I want you to see:

But Daddy busy reading just read on:
Later he said to his little son:

Daddy he said, please listen to me:
I have something I want you to see:
But Daddy had to cut the lawn:
He said later son, later on:

But Daddy he said , listen to me:
I have something I want you to see:
But Daddy had windows to mend:
Later son, when I come in:

Daddy he said, listen to me:
I have something I want you to see:
Not right now son, I don’t have the time:
I have to fix my fishing line:

Okay Daddy I understand:
You’re what I’ll be when I ‘m a man:
Just do the things I want to do:
O, yes Dad, I’ll grow up to be just like you

Son Please

Now I am old and I understand:
I wish I had been a better man:
I know you’re grown up and on your
own:
You’re a busy man with your own home:

I’m just asking for a little of your time:
Even though with you I didn’t share mine:
I was blinded by other things you see:
I wasn't there when you needed me:


Give me a chance please, you’re my only child:
I just live now to see your smile:
Please don’t look at me so cold:
I need you now that I am old:


Check and see son if you have the time:
Together we can maybe toss a fishing line:
You say, you have to mow the lawn:
And you’ll see me later on:


Maybe for awhile I can come in:
Oh, you’re busy with windows to mend:
"Go ahead son, do what you have to do:
I see me now, when I look at you:
