Transcript: 

Verse 1: A little girl sat yearning While children were at play Her heart was filled with sorrow though others light and gay A strange man then approached her and said what makes you sad The little girl began to cry and said I want my dad.
Chorus: I want my Daddy I’m as lonely as can be I want my dear old Dad tho’ he’s far away from me When I kissed him as we parted There was a tear drop in his eye Good luck to the boys of the Allies We sang, then we said good bye
Verse 2: She told her little story As plain as it could be I love my dear old daddy though far across the sea The first to join the army he loved the Union Jack Each night I kneel and pray that God will bring my Daddy back
