[Verse 1]
Tell me where he comes from
At last I’ll know where to go
Mommy says that when you look hard
You always find something
She says he’s never very far away
He leaves very often for work
Mommy says, “Working is good”
Better than being in bad company
Right?

[Pre-Chorus]
Where’s your dad?
Tell me where’s your dad?
Without even having to talk to him
He knows what’s wrong
Oh beloved dad
Tell me where you’re hiding
I must’ve counted my fingers
At least a thousand times

[Chorus]
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where, where are you, where are you dad?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where, where are you, where are you dad?

[Verse 2]
Even if we believe it or not
There’ll be a day we won’t believe it anymore
One day we’ll all be dads
And from one day to the other we’ll disappear
Will we be hated?
Will we be admired?
Just passing on genes or geniuses?
Tell us who gives birth to these irresponsible people?
Tell us who, look
Everyone knows how to make babies
But no one knows how to make dads
Mr. Know-It-All must’ve inherited it
Maybe you need to wing it or something?
Tell us where they’re hiding
We must’ve bitten our fingers at least
A thousand times

[Chorus]
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where, where are you, where are you dad?

[Pre-Chorus]
Where’s your dad?
Tell me where’s your dad?
Without even having to talk to him
He knows what’s wrong
Oh beloved dad
Tell me where you’re hiding
I must’ve counted my fingers
At least a thousand times
Where’s your dad?
Tell me where’s your dad?
Without even having to talk to him
He knows what’s wrong
Oh beloved dad
Tell me where you’re hiding
I must’ve counted my fingers
At least a thousand times

[Chorus]
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where are you? Dad, where are you?
Where, where are you, where are you dad?
