Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh, mister how's your daughter?
You really ought to know
For every thing you taught her
Don't matter when she's all alone
Verse 2
My crazy friend named Cara
After all of us told her, ?No?
S-s-she'd get another spoon ball
Now, she's going no where slow
Verse 3
Her papa caught her for the first time
And put her out on the street
Cara told me to remind him
That she was only seventeen
Verse 4
Yo, mister how's your daughter? how's your girl?
You really ought to know
Every thing you taught her
It don't matter when she's all alone
Verse 5
Cara got hooked up with the wrong kids
Then s-s-she started skipping school
Then Cara got high to make disappear
A world full of fools
Verse 6
In her eyes her father was the biggest fool of them all
And she was speeding, that's what she?d say
Maybe, maybe, maybe she wouldn't talk so stupid
If she knew how much she needed this fool today
Verse 7
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
You really ought to know
For every thing you taught her
Don't matter when she's all alone
Verse 8
She needs you right now mister
?Cause she ain't got long to live
It?s so easy to say, ?I love you?
But it?s harder to forgive
Verse 9
Her father cried when I told him that Cara twice got knocked up
He said, ?Just like her mama, aha, she shows her body
When she wants to show love, she tried that stuff with me
And I beat her down, there's no way I could let her stay
Couldn't let her stick around ?
Verse 10
?Cause I tried so hard to raise her right
He said, ?What made her turn out this way?, I don't know
What made her turn out this way, I don't know, I don't know
And I said and I said and I said
Verse 11
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
You really ought to know, every thing
Every thing you taught her
Don't matter when she's all alone
Verse 12
But she needs you right now mister
She ain't got long to live
It?s easy to say, ?I love you?
But it?s harder to forgive
(How?s your daughter tonight?)
Verse 13
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
(How?s your daughter tonight?)
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
(How?s your daughter tonight?)
Verse 14
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
(How?s your daughter tonight?)
Yo, mister how's your daughter?
(How?s your daughter tonight?)
