The Temptations: Papa Was A Rollin' Stone Meaning

Papa Was A Rollin' Stone Lyrics

It was the third of September
That day I'll always remember, yes I will
Cause that was the day, that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothin' but bad things about him
Momma I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma...

    This song is about how a child throughout his/her life is asking their mother what their father is like because they is hearing all these different things about him. As in the hook, in the beginning the mother try making the father look great but as the kids grew older is was harder to do it. That is why after the last verse when the kids are grown is when she broke down because she knew that she cannot keep them from the truth anymore.
