First thing I remember was asking papa, why,
For there were many things I didn't know.
And daddy always smiled and took me by the hand,
Saying, someday you'll understand.
Well, I'm here to tell you now, each and every mother's son,
That you better learn it fast, you better learn it young,
'Cause someday never comes.
Well, time and tears went by and I collected dust.
When daddy went away, he said, try to be a man,
And someday you'll understand.
And then one day in April, I wasn't even there,
A son was born to me. Mama held his hand,
Sayin' someday you'll understand.
Think it was September, the year I went away,
And still I see him standing tryin' to be a man,
I said, someday you'll understand.
