Daddy hugs his little man, says: "Son, I've got to go,"
And he pulls out of the drive and disappears.
As they walk back in the house, the young boy asks his Momma,
"Where does Daddy go when he leaves here?"

Momma tells her little man: "Your Daddy's got a job,
"An' when he goes to work, they pay him for his time."
Well, the young boy gets to thinkin', an' he heads up to his bedroom:
Comes runnin' back with a quarter and four dimes:

An' says: "Momma, how much time will this buy me?
"Is it enough to take me fishin' or throw a football in the street?
"If I'm a little short then how much more does Daddy need,
"To spend some time with me?"

The young boy tells his Momma: "Now, I know Daddy's busy,
"'Cause most times when he gets home, it's dark outside.
"But tell him I've got me some pennies saved up from the tooth fairy,
"An' I keep 'em in my piggy bank an' I believe there's thirty-five.

"An' Momma, how much time will this buy me?
"Is it enough to take me campin' in a tent down by the creek.
"If I'm a little short then how much more does Daddy need,
"To spend some time with me?"

Instrumental break.

"An' Momma, how much time will this buy me?
"Is it enough for just an afternoon, a day, or a whole week
"If I'm a little short then how much more does Daddy need,
"To spend some time with me?"

Momma takes her little man, sets him on her lap,
Starts dialin' up some numbers on the 'phone.
She says: "Daddy come home early, you don't have to chase that dollar,
"'Cause your little man has got one here at home."
