A little tot was playing one night upon the floor
Her mother sat and id'ly watched the little girl of four
All at once she dropped her toys and tears beging to shed
She climbed upon her mother's knee and this is what she said

Tell my why my daddy don't come home
I know that I am much to big to cry
Why don't he come and play with me again
Mommy why did daddy say goodbye

That night she wrote a letter to one whose name she bore
She asked him to forget the past and come back once more
You little girl is pleading and calling Daddy's name
Oh, Won't you please come back again so she won't have to say
