Wayne Newton - Daddy don’t you walk so fast
Tekst: Peter Callander / Muziek: Geoff Stephens
(1972)






The love between the two of us was down
And it got so bad, I knew, I had to leave
But halfway down that highway
When I turned around, I saw
Our little daughter running after me



I hear:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
Daddy, slow down some
’Cause you’re making me run
Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”



Now it broke my heart to tell my little daughter
That her daddy had to run to catch a train
She had no way of knowing
I was leaving home for good
I turned around and there she was again



And she said to me:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”
My darling cried:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
Daddy, slow down some
’Cause you’re making me run
Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”



If only for the sake of my sweet daughter
I just had to turn back home right there and then
And try to start a new life with the mother of my child
I couldn’t barely hear those words again



She cried and said:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”
My darling cried:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
Daddy, slow down some
’Cause you’re making me run, ohohoh
Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”



“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”
My darling cried:
“Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
Daddy, slow down some
’Cause you’re making me run
Daddy, don’t you walk so fast”
