Latley I've been spendin' lots of time with my kid
Tellin' him stories
About the things that we did
When we were a family

Long time ago
I've answerd his questions
'Til I'm blue in the face
Wish all that hurt in him

I could erase
But I tell him the truth
Cause he ain't to young to know

Single father
Part time mother
When I'm not one
Then I'm the other
You used to be
My full time lover
Now I'm a single father
And a part time mother
I spend every minute
I can with my boy
There's no doubt about it
He's my pride and joy

Someday he will grow up
And I won't have him no more
Some things I just find
Too hard to explain

So we go to mcdonalds
Or I buy him a train
And we go put it together
On the living room floor

Such is the life
Of a single father
He says daddy explain
If it's not too much bother

While its just you and me
Living here in this home
I don't understand it
And neither does he

Why there's just two
When there should be three of us
Sharing this moment
Lord I feel so alone
