The Lyrics

My Dad went away and he never came back on a Sunday afternoon
I went to my Mom to ask where he's gone and she said, "He'll be back real soon."
But knew it wasn't true, didn't know what to do, and Mom was looking pretty grim
There wasn't a reason,
But I needed a reason,
A reason to find him, now, whoa, whoa, whoa


Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
I really want To,oo,oo,oo know
And then find him

Did he get in the car; drive over people's yards, and crash into a tree?
Or Run to the street, bow down near his feet, and get stung by a killer bee?
Please tell me now, and tell me how, why he went so far away
'Cuase there wasn't a reason
No, there wasn't a reason
Why he didn't just stay-hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
I really want To,oo,oo,oo know
And then find him

It's now been a long time, and we've all done a crime, by not looking around for him
But I don't know where, and you just don't care, tell me please, please Jim
You were both good friends until the end, and then he went away
But there wasn't a reason
No, there wasn't a reason
Why he didn't just stay-hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
I really want To,oo,oo,oo know
And then find him

Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
Tell me where
Dad went on Sunday
I really want To,oo,oo,oo know
And then find him

I'm glad (for your sake) that it's not a true story - a very good parody, though not exactly funny..
