Conway Twitty performs "The Games That Daddies Play"on That Nashville Music.

"The Games That Daddies Play" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Conway Twitty. It was released in July 1976 as the first single from his Greatest Hits 2 album. A song about a boy who—while raised by a single mother—longs for a father figure in his life, "The Games That Daddies Play" was Twitty's 17th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in October 1976. Its one-week atop the chart was part of an 11-week run in the Hot Country Singles chart's top 40.

Conway Twitty The Games That Daddies Play lyrics

 

He put his arm around her shoulder 

with a voice that sounded older

He said, "Mom, I got something on my mind.

I don't wanna bother you but 

I sure need to talk to you

If you can only spare the time.

And Mom I hope you understand 

How much I love and need you

And I don't want you to take this the wrong way

But don't you think I'm old enough 

And big enough and strong enough

To play the games that Daddies play?"

 

My friend Billy Parker's dad 

Came by today to see me

And he wondered if I'd like to go

With him and Billy on a hike 

And maybe camp out overnight

The way I've seen 'em do in picture shows

And there's one thing I'd like to do 

And maybe if I ask him to

He'd sit and talk with me man to man

We'd only be gone overnight 

And I could find out what it's like

To play the games that Daddies play.

 

She quickly turned to hide the tears 

From her son of seven years

He didn't know she'd read between the lines

He'd never really known his dad 

And although he'd never ask

She knew exactly what was on his mind

She searched her mind in desperation, 

Six long years of separation

Dimmed the words she knew she had to say

I hope you're never big enough 

Or old enough or bold enough

To play the games that Daddies play.

 

I know you need and want his love but, 

Son, you're the victim of

Another kind of game that Daddies play...
