    He put his arm around her shoulder
    with a voice that sounded older
    He said, "Mom, I got something on my mind
    I don't wanna bother you but
    I sure need to talk to you
    If you can only spare the time.
    And Mom I hope you understand
    How much I love and need you
    And I don't want you to take this the wrong way
    But don't you think I'm old enough
    And big enough and strong enough
    To play the games that Daddies play?"

    My friend Billy Parker's dad
    Came by today to see me
    And he wondered if I'd like to go
    With him and Billy on a hike
    And maybe camp out overnight
    The way I've seen 'em do in picture shows
    And there's one thing I'd like to do
    And maybe if I ask him to
    He'd sit and talk with me man to man
    We'd only be gone overnight
    And I could find out what it's like
    To play the games that Daddies play.

    She quickly turned to hide the tears
    From her son of seven years
    He didn't know she'd read between the lines
    He'd never really known his dad
    And although he'd never ask
    She knew exactly what was on his mind
    She searched her mind in desperation,
    Six long years of separation
    Dimmed the words she knew she had to say
    I hope you're never big enough
    Or old enough or bold enough
    To play the games that Daddies play.

    I know you need and want his love but,
    Son, you're the victim of
    Another kind of game that Daddies play...
