Big Daddy



Where have you gone, big daddy?
Why have you left me here alone?
Where have you gone, big daddy?
Why have you left me here all alone?
Trying to go on without you baby
Has turned my lonely heart to stone.

You promised you’d always be here,
Why’d you have to up and leave?
Oh, you promised you’d always be here,
Why’d you have to up and leave?
I believed every word you said to me,
Never thought you would deceive.

My days have been filled with misery
And my nights have been filled with tears.
My days have been filled with misery
And all my nights have been filled with tears.
Instead of the warmth of your embrace,
I find myself wrapped up in fears.

I’m so tired of feeling let down,
So tired of feeling betrayed.
Oh yeah, I’m so tired of feeling let down,
So tired feeling betrayed.
It’s time to let go of this heartache,
Time to let go of the love we made.

I don’t care where you’ve gone, big daddy,
And I hope you don’t come back again.
I don’t care where you’ve gone, big daddy,
And I hope you never come back again.
This game is over, big daddy,
And this time Mama’s gonna win.


~~This was written for this week's prompt over at Poetic Bloomings asking us to make the title of our poem the name of a favorite TV show or movie.  Big Daddy is actually not a favorite of mine, but as I was considering titles from my movie collection, a sort-of bluesy lyric popped into my head.  I may not always understand my muse, but I've learned to follow her when she starts running!
