Don't know who my Daddy is
My Daddy is
I guess I should be sad he is'-
nt here but Lord I do not have the strength
Will Low inclination Lord
Pay the Man
Hey the Man
Seems to me Debate on more than just
A list of sins

When I was a young I used to beg, I used to beg
O mother yeah I wondered, O I wondered
Who this sinner could have been

Mother will not speak of him, will not speak of him
And swore not to say his name again except in vain beneath her breath.

O Oh O Oh

My father is unknown to me
a Mystery
He should not mean a thing to me
But he's a ghost I cannot lay to rest

Be alone And cursed to roam, O cursed to roam the earth unknown
to me and Anti Progeny
And siblings I have missed

Do not even know if he's aware that I, aware that I
And was conceived one night when He and Mother Lay
One night star crossed lovers
O that fate for trade
O fate for trade
Or merely dull and drunk and strangers
Fumbling away
O Oh Oh Auughh


No, it seems that daddy did not care for me
Oh care for me
Mother took me in her arms and loved me twice as hard
I have grown into a man, into a man
left a trail of blood and broken hearts
Since I have searched for my Old Man

I have looked in gutters and in palaces and cities
And in circuses for whispers
But its trail it has gone cold

Is he just a body in a shallow grave
A hidden grave
And will there be an answer to this riddle
I was told

Oh O Oh O Aughhh!

O Daddy

I have had my my fill of love
I obey, I have loved
Know I am no sin
I Know I am no shame
Left it all behind
Carried on my way
Only Me and God left to blame
Only Me and God left to blame

I do not even know my own children's name

O Oh O Oh
