buy me a daddy lyrics – tammy wynette

i buy toys for my little girl
almost every day
to try and keep her happy
since her daddy went away.

but today she looked so lonely
as she climbed upon my knees
and in her sweet tiny voice
she said this to me.

mommy i love you
and all of my toys
but i want a daddy
like the other girls and boys.

then she gave me her pennies
her nickels and dimes
and the next thing she told me
broke this heart of mine.

buy me a daddy
he don’t have to be new
just as long as he loves me
any daddy will do.

and we’ll make him promise
daddy won’t go away
please buy me a daddy
let’s go get one today.

buy me a daddy
let’s go get one today…
