I ran into an old friend of mine the other day. 
We hadn't seen each other for quite a while. 
What he had to say to me hit me pretty hard, 
'cause I think a lot of folks get started this way. He said:
I thought it would be so easy, another one night stand.			
She seemed so warm and willin', right in the palm of my hand.		
Now it's three months ago last Wednesday since I woke up in her bed.	
Lord I think I love her, but it scares me half to death.		
'Cause you know I'm a rake and a ramblin' man				
Free as an eagle flies						
Well, look at me now and tell me true:					
Do I look like a daddy to you?						 Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?						 
Now she's feelin' sick in the mornin's; She can't get into her jeans.	
I spent my last ten dollars, bought her a second hand ring.		
I start to work next Monday 'cause I just can't let her down.		 
I've had me some good times, but it's all changin' now.			 
You know I'm a rake and a ramblin' man,					
Free as an eagle flies.						
Well look at me now and tell me true:					
Do I look like a daddy to you?						
Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?						
You know I'm a rake and a ramblin' man,					
Free as an eagle flies.							
Well look at me now and tell me true:					
Do I look like a daddy to you?						
Oh, do I look like a daddy to you?
