Papa Too

This song is by Tex Ritter and appears on the album The Friendly Voice Of (1965).

Delia's in the bedroom weary and worn
My child's in there with her a tryin' to be born
I've called for the doctor he's a way overdue
Oh this havin' babies is a hard on mama
But it's hard on papa too
Papa too papa too

Well I have to make a livin' by the sweat of my brow
I'd like to do better but I don't know how
Delia's Sunday slippers are plumb worn through
Oh this tenant farmin' is a hard on mama
But it's hard on papa too
Papa too papa too

I can hear Delia's moanin' in back of the door
Now the doctor's in there with her and I'm walking the floor
Oh Lordy help Delia help the baby too
(Well this kind of labor is hard on mama)
But it's hard on papa too
Papa too papa too

(Well the baby is a cryin' everything's alright)
My Delia's smilin' there ain't a prettier sight
And the baby is a boy child on a blanket of blue
(Well I must say that I'm mighty proud of mama)
And a proud of papa too
Papa too papa too papa too papa too
