When I come home baby
And I've been working all night long
I put my daughter on my knee and she says
"Daddy what's wrong "
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says She says
"Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why "
You know I got a woman
And she lives in the poor part of town
And I go see her sometimes
And we make love so fine
I put my head on her shoulder
She says "Tell me all your troubles "
Daddy you're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why
Even my friends say to me sometimes
And make out like I don't understand them
You know what they say
They say "Daddy you're a fool to cry
