Her hair up in a pony tail,
her favorite dress tied with a bow
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
and she couldn't wait to go

But her mommy tried to tell her,
that she probably should stay home
Why the kids might not understand,
if she went to school alone

But she was not afraid;
she knew just what to say
What to tell her classmates,
on this Daddy's Day

But still her mother worried,
for her to face this day alone
And that was why once again,
she tried to keep her daughter home

But the little girl went to school,
eager to tell them all
About a dad she never sees,
a dad who never calls

There were daddies along the wall in back,
for everyone to meet
Children squirming impatiently,
anxious in their seats

One by one the teacher called,
a student from the class
To introduce their daddy,
as seconds slowly passed
At last the teacher called her name,
every child turned to stare
Each of them were searching,
for a man who wasn't there

"Where's her daddy at?"
she heard…
