    LYRICS :
    Oh, mister hows your daughter?
    You really ought to know
    For every thing you taught her
    Dont matter when shes all alone
    My crazy friend named Cara
    After all of us told her, No
    S-s-she'd get another spoon ball
    Now, shes going no where slow
    Her papa caught her for the first time
    And put her out on the street
    Cara told me to remind him
    That she was only seventeen
    Yo, mister hows your daughter? Hows your girl?
    You really ought to know
    Every thing you taught her
    It dont matter when shes all alone
    Cara got hooked up with the wrong kids
    Then s-s-she started skipping school
    Then Cara got high to make disappear
    A world full of fools
    In her eyes her father was the biggest fool of them all
    And she was speeding, thats what shed say
    Maybe, maybe, maybe she wouldnt talk so stupid
    If she knew how much she needed this fool today
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    You really ought to know
    For every thing you taught her
    Dont matter when shes all alone
    She needs you right now mister
    Cause she aint got long to live
    Its so easy to say, I love you
    But its harder to forgive
    Her father cried when I told him that Cara twice got knocked up
    He said, Just like her mama, aha, she shows her body
    When she wants to show love, she tried that stuff with me
    And I beat her down, theres no way I could let her stay
    Couldnt let her stick around
    Cause I tried so hard to raise her right
    He said, What made her turn out this way, I dont know
    What made her turn out this way, I dont know, I dont know
    And I said and I said and I said
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    You really ought to know, every thing
    Every thing you taught her
    Dont matter when shes all alone
    But she needs you right now mister
    She aint got long to live
    Its easy to say, I love you
    But its harder to forgive
    (Hows your daughter tonight?)
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    (Hows your daughter tonight?)
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    (Hows your daughter tonight?)
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    (Hows your daughter tonight?)
    Yo, mister hows your daughter?
    (Hows your daughter tonight?)
