Where do I Fit In?

Lene' Mumaugh 1961 (Billings, Montana)

Mommy's no longer with Daddy
And the house is up for sale
Where do I fit in?
No one can seem to tell

They keep pointing and seem
Worried about who gets the TV
No one seems to mention
What they're going to do with me

I look from one to the other
I love them both the same
They want me to choose
Is this a new game?

Mommy tells me that
She'll be marrying soon
There will be a new daddy
I don't like the sound of that tune.

There is only one daddy for me
He is the one I've always known
Since the first day here on earth
And will be until I'm fully grown
