All you want to do is sit around and pout
And now I got enough and so I'm getting out
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I been in the doghouse so doggone long
That when I get a kiss I think that something's wrong
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I'll go find a gal that wants to treat me right
You go get yourself a man that wants to fight
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

You start your jaws a-wagging and it never stops
You never shut your mouth until I blow my top
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I remember back when you were nice and sweet
Things have changed, you'd rather fight than eat
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I'm a-gonna do some riding on the midnight train
I'm taking everything except my ball and chain
I'm leaving now, I'm leaving now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow
