Lyrics

Mama never seemed to miss the finer things of life If she did she never did say so to daddy She never wanted to be more than a mother and a wife If she did she never did say so to daddy The only thing that seemed to be important to her life Was to make our house a home and make us happy Mama never wanted any more than what she had If she did she never did say so to daddy He often left her all alone but she didn't mind the staying home If she did she never did say so to daddy And she never missed the flowers and the cards he never sent her If she did she never did say so to daddy Being took for granted was a thing that she accepted And she didn't need those things to make her happy And she didn't seem to notice that he didn't kiss and hold her If she did she never did say so to daddy

One morning we awoke just to find a note That mama carefully wrote and left to daddy And as we began to read it Our ears could not believe it The words that she had written there to daddy She said the kids are older now they don't need me very much And I've gone in search of love I need so badly I have needed you so long but I just can't keep holding on She never meant to come back home If she did she never did say so to daddy Goodbye to daddy
