Daddy, Come Home  (1913) 
by Irving Berlin
Cover page to the sheet music.

[1st verse:]
Hello! Central, dear
Central, listen here:
Please connect me with my father
Number one, two, three!

Daddy this is me
Come home right away
Since you left this morning, daddy dear
Many things have happened here

[Refrain:]
Daddy, come home!
Close the factory and hurry up home!
Won't you come to me?

Johnny stole my mittens
My brand new Sunday mittens
Outside of that the cat has lost her kittens

Daddy, come home!
Johnny's punching me, and
I can't hold my own

Ma found a locket
Of a girl in your pocket
Daddy, so you better come home.

[2nd verse:]
Daddy, hurry up!
Johnny broke the cup
That we borrowed from our neighbor

Harry stubbed his toe
Playing Buffalo
Mabel fell downstairs
Willie's chasing Jack around the flat
Everything's fine outside of that
