4. Daddies Just Aren't Daddies
in the Middle of the Night

 Play Clip

At 1 a.m., your child screams out, awakened by a storm.
Your husband keeps on sleeping as if heíd been chloroformed.
You trip on his work shoes as you go to calm her fright.
Daddies just arenít daddies in the middle of the night.

Chorus
Between bedtime and sunrise, when a parent is required,
Your husband has a headache or is suddenly too tired.
Itís usually the mom who fumbles for the nearest light.
Daddies just arenít daddies in the middle of the night.

Your child has got a fever and a case of stomach flu.
He had an accident, now itís quarter after 2:00.
You change sheets and blankets long before itís light.
Daddies just arenít daddies in the middle of the night.

Repeat Chorus

When the 4:00 a.m. alarm sounds, youíre not sure that youíre alive.
Your child has got to catch a field trip bus that leaves at 5:00.
When you get stopped for speeding, you clutch your bathrobe tight.
Daddies just arenít daddies in the middle of the night.

Repeat Chorus
