Toots & Maytals - Daddy

Daddy, oh, tell my mommy for me,
I want you to tell her, oh yeah,
Tell her that I'm right here.
For I'm longing to see my mommy,
I want to hold her up,
I want to talk with her, I want to kiss her,
I want to shake her hand;
'Cause I love her so..
Let me tell you something!


Let me tell you something!
Once I was away far far from my home,
Didn't know how to come back home.
And one night as I got up,
I could see clearly, that,
There was nowhere in sight.
I could see my ma and pa,
Coming to look for me,
But it was just a dream.
And I decided in my mind to go home,
And I started across my bridge,
And towards my door.
I met a girl, who's named Jean
She says "Toots, you know I got,
To give you a new name,
Before you leave this place."
I asked her: "why?"
She says: "Just because you look to be very great."
"That's why I'm going to call you Mr. ?????"
That's my new name.
