"Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"

(As recorded by Wayne Newton)
PETER CALLANDER
GEOFF STEPHENS

The love between the two of us was dyin'
And it got so bad I knew I had to leave
But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw
My little daughter runnin' after me, cryin'

"Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some, 'cos you're makin' 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 bear to hear those words again, as she said

"Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some, 'cos you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Won't you slow down some 'cos you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast."

It broke my heart to tell my little daughter
That her daddy had to run and catch a train
She had no way of knowing I was leavin' home for good
I turned around and there she was, cryin'

"Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some, 'cos you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast."
