He put his arms around her shoulder 
And with a voice that sounded older
He said mom I've got something on my mind
I don't want to bother you
But I sure need to talk to you
If you could only spare the time
And mom I hope you understand 
How much I love and need you and
I don't want you to take this the wrong way
But don't you think I'm old enough 
And big enough and strong enough to play
The games that daddies play

My friend Billy Parker's dad
Came by today to see me and
He wondered if I'd like to go
With him and Billy on a hike
And maybe camp out overnight 
The way I've seen them do in picture shows
And there's one thing I'd like to do
And maybe if I asked him to
He's sit and talk to me man to man
We'd only be gone overnight 
And I could find out what it's like to play
The games that daddies play

She quickly turned to hide the tears 
From her son of seven years
He didn't know she'd read between the lines 
He'd never really known his dad
And although he'd never ask
She knew exactly what was on his mind
She searched her mind in desperation 
Six long years of separation  Dimmed the words she knew she had to say
I hope you're never big enough 
Or old enough or bold enough to play
The games that daddies play

I know you need and want his love
But son, you're the victim of
 Another kind of games that daddies play
