There are times to remember And times that I wish to forget Our time together was tinged with love and regret Oh, my girl My sweet, sweet little girl Didn't I try to tell ya that life was for living? Oh, didn't I? And wasn't I the guy who said 'stay away from that tribe'? Oh, wasn't I? And didn't I try to tell you 'that's stuff's gonna kill ya'? Oh, didn't I? But you thought it was cool and I was just an old fool Oh, look at ya You left home for the city With Hollywood stars in your eyes Now your mother, God bless her, Cries herself to sleep every night Oh my girl, my sweet innocent girl Didn't I search the streets for the beggars, pimps and cheats? Oh, didn't I? And didn't I try to guide you to a baptism of fire? Oh, didn't I? And didn't I try to warn ya 'bout that folk in California? Oh, didn't I? But you said 'daddy, please don't worry, I got friends out there who love me' Now look at ya Oh baby, come back home, we can work this out There is no blame I wanna hold you close and stroke your hair and share your pain Didn't I do the best for you, try to make you stay in school? Didn't I? Once I was your hero but I went from ten to zero Oh, didn't I? Now listen For a roll on the dice you nearly paid the ultimate price Oh, didn't ya? Now I stand by your bedside, watching you fight for you life Where's the innocence? (Where's the innocence? ) Where's the future? (Where is the future?) Where the beauty? (Ooo) Where's the promise? (Where is the promise?) There are times to remember And times that I wish to forget
