  • Oh Daddy
    You know you make me cry
    How can you love me
    I don't understand why

    Oh Daddy
    If I can make you see
    If there's been a fool around
    It's got to be me
    Yes, it's got to be me

    Oh Daddy
    You soothe me with your smile
    You're letting me know
    You're the best thing in my life

    Oh Daddy
    If I could make you see
    If there's been a fool around
    It's got to be me
    Yes, it's got to me

    Why are you right when I'm so wrong
    I'm so weak but you're so strong
    Everything you do is just alright
    And I can't walk away from you
    Baby, if I tried

    Why are you right when I'm so wrong
    I'm so weak but you're so strong
    Everything you do is just alright
    And I can't walk away from you
    Baby, if I tried

    Oh Daddy
    You soothe me with your smile
    You're letting me know
    You're the best thing in my life

    Oh Daddy
    If I could make you see
    If there's been a fool around
    It's got to be me
    Yes, it's got to me
    Yes, it's got to me
    Yes, it's got to me Writer/s: Christine McVie

  • Joe Mannapperuma from Sri LankaNever forget them.
  • Tony from Chicago, Ilreally graet deep track! good melody and great vibes!!!!!
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkI am so glad to know that Christine didn't write this to her ex, John. I always thought it was a beautiful confession song about knowing you need that person you fell in love with. I guess it works both ways. Christine's voice and musical talents are grossly underrated. She had a successful career of her own before McVie under her maiden name, Perfect.
