Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head,
My pillow still wet
From last night's tears 
As I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee cup
Kept crying out
 Ringing in my ears

Don't cry, daddy 
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
And together we'll find a brand new mommy 
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again 
Daddy, ride us on your back again 
Oh, daddy  Please 
Don't cry

Why are children always first 
To feel the pain and the hurt the worst 
It's true but somehow 
It just don't seem right 
'Cause every time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so I wonder 
Will it be the same tonight 

Oh, daddy, please don't cry
