I buy toys for my little girl almost every day
To try and keep her happy since her daddy went away
But today she looked so lonely as she climbed upon my knees
And in her sweet tiny voice she said this to me
"Mommy, I love you and all of my toys
But I want a daddy like the other girls and boys"
Then she gave me her pennies, her nickels and dimes
And the next thing she told me broke this heart of mine
"Buy me a daddy, he don't have to be new
Just as long as he loves me, any daddy will do
And we'll make him promise, daddy won't go away
Please buy me a daddy, let's go get one today
Buy me a daddy, let's go get one today"
