Hey, daddy just lost his pay
What did he do it for
It never made it through our door
He drank the whole week away

And what can a family say
There must be a better way
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

Pick up the telephone
Tell him you want him home
To sit and watch the evening's pass
And readin' the leaves of grass

I'm caught in a closing door
It's pinning me to the floor
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

I'm caught in a closing door
It's pinning me to the floor
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try

When we're old and gray
And the things we say
Are the things we really mean
So why cause a scene
When things ain't what they seem
'Cause the end result's the same

Now what can a family say
There must be a better way
Now mama don't start to cry
Let's give him another try
