Daddy don't go out tonight
Just stay home till morning light
Me and mama don't feel right
Please hold us tight
Daddy why did you go to work
When you know just how much we love you so
Please come back tomorrow

[Chorus]
They're giving out guns in the ghetto
They're saying they will set you free
One day I'll have children of my own
But I'm afraid they won't have me

Mama, is Daddy home
