The father was neglecting the home he once loved well,
And how to win him back again the mother could not tell;
Until returned their daughter fair, who had been far away,
She took her to her father's side and these kind words did say:

"To show you the better way, Tom, that's why I brought her here,
No matter what you say, Tom. to you she was always dear;
You'll be as you were of old, Tom, so listen to what she'll say,
Because she has come home to 'daddy,' just to show him the better way."

The little one said "Daddy, you're always kind, I know,
So please be good and stay at home with us who love you so."
With tears he look his fond wife's hand And said, "God bless the day,
Too brought our lassie home to me to show the better way." -Chorus.
