    Harry Chapin did a song called : "Cats in the Craddle "

    Song of a father who ignored and missed his sons growing up years..coz he never paid much attention to the boy.

    An R&B singer ..maybe Karen White? im not sure.. But the title of the song was .. " Thanks for my child "\

    its a mothers homage to a dead beat dad..she thanks him, for allowing her all the joy of single parenting.

    Jermaine Jackson..

    Big brother of Micheal & Janet..

    Did a solo tune called : Daddys home '..sitory of a father returning

    The TEMPTATIONS...had a tune called

    " Poppa was a rolling stone "

    Story of a father who never stayed around..and was always on a run-going away-hustling-street living-never held an honest job etc..

    lyrics include: " Poppa was a rolling stone, where ever he laid his hat was his home, and when he died ? ..all he left us was- alone !

    Theres even a question the son asks' " Hey momma , folks say poppa had 3 outside children and another wife ..thats not right? folks ssaid poppa was never much on thinking..spent most of his time chasing women and momma IM depending on you to tell me the truth ?
