Oh, mister hows your daughter?
You really ought to know
For every thing you taught her
Dont matter when shes all alone

My crazy friend named Cara
After all of us told her, No
S-s-she'd get another spoon ball
Now, shes going no where slow

Her papa caught her for the first time
And put her out on the street
Cara told me to remind him
That she was only seventeen

Yo, mister hows your daughter? Hows your girl?
You really ought to know
Every thing you taught her
It dont matter when shes all alone

Cara got hooked up with the wrong kids
Then s-s-she started skipping school
Then Cara got high to make disappear
A world full of fools

In her eyes her father was the biggest fool of them all
And she was speeding, thats what shed say
Maybe, maybe, maybe she wouldnt talk so stupid
If she knew how much she needed this fool today

Yo, mister hows your daughter?
You really ought to know
For every thing you taught her
Dont matter when shes all alone

She needs you right now mister
Cause she aint got long to live
Its so easy to say, I love you
But its harder to forgive

Her father cried when I told him that Cara twice got knocked up
He said, Just like her mama, aha, she shows her body
When she wants to show love, she tried that stuff with me
And I beat her down, theres no way I could let her stay
Couldnt let her stick around

Cause I tried so hard to raise her right
He said, What made her turn out this way, I dont know
What made her turn out this way, I dont know, I dont know
And I said and I said and I said

Yo, mister hows your daughter?
You really ought to know, every thing
Every thing you taught her
Dont matter when shes all alone

But she needs you right now mister
She aint got long to live
Its easy to say, I love you
But its harder to forgive
(Hows your daughter tonight?)

Yo, mister hows your daughter?
(Hows your daughter tonight?)
Yo, mister hows your daughter?
(Hows your daughter tonight?)

Yo, mister hows your daughter?
(Hows your daughter tonight?)
Yo, mister hows your daughter?
(Hows your daughter tonight?)
