  • Papa
    Who's to blame
    Why you never had your fortune and fame
    Papa what did you gain
    To leave the love you had for a two-bit dame

    Papa
    Why did you turn your back
    Why didn't you stay on track
    Why did you leave and make her cry

    Papa
    You meant the world to me
    Why did you abandon me
    Now it's a long and sad goodbye

    Papa
    What is this game
    With all that cheating you did you're gonna go insane

    Papa
    I am in pain
    'Cause on the day that you left
    You said I'd do the same

    Papa
    Why did you turn your back
    Why didn't you stay on track
    Why did you leave and make her cry

    Papa
    You meant the world to me
    Why did you abandon me
    Now it's a long and sad goodbye

    Papa, Papa, Papa
    No
    Oh Papa, Papa, oh papa
    No
    Oh Papa

    Why did you turn your back
    Why didn't you stay on track
    Why did you leave and make her cry

    Papa
    You meant the world to me
    Why did you abandon me
    Now it's a long and sad goodbye

    Papa, Papa, Papa
    No
    Oh Papa, oh papa, oh papa
    No, no, stay Writer/s: CRAIG DAVID ROSS, LENNY KRAVITZ

  • Mike from Lake Hopatcong, NjThis song originally ended on a minor note but Lenny later changed it to end on a major note to give the song a positive ending in his mind.
