Question
Hello Steve,

Unfortunately, my father is on his death bed at the time I am writing this...   I thank God that before he lost his ability to speak, I asked him what that song was that he use to sing to us when we were little kids in the mid-60's..  I was able to record him singing what he remembered of it.    

Here's what he was able to remember of the words:

Verse 1
Songwriters write about Mothers
songs that are happy & glad
seems they forget about fathers
..so I'll sing this song to my day...

(Chorus - in part)
There's no Pal in the world - Like my Daddy
...Wonderful Daddy of mine

Verse 2
I was thinking today,
If my Daddy went away,
how I miss him,   how I'd long for him,???
????????????????
(Chorus - in part)
There's no Pal in the world - Like my Daddy
...Wonderful Daddy of mine

Answer
Hi Edgil:  Sorry for few day delay as My PC was in repair shop.

I can't find your exact song but this one is close. Not sure if that helps.
