: Was this originally from a movie, book, song?

The song I remember is pasted in here.

I don't know where the phrase originates
but I can tell you that it's a country "custom," at least it is in West Virginia/Kentucky, to ask about family. Anyone new is asked, "Who are your people?" You can be 50 and still be asked "Whose your daddy?"

Steven Seagall (spelling) was filming in Kentucky, I'm told, and was out doing a little shopping. He stopped at a roadside stand to buy a birdhouse. The old guy at the stand asked him, "Whose boy are you?" I don't know if this story is for real but I think it's sweet.

Odessey & Oracle

It's the time of the season
When the love runs high
In this time, give it to me easy
And let me try
With pleasured hands

To take you and the sun to
Promised lands
To show you every one
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
(What's your name?)
Who's your daddy?
(Who's your daddy? He rich?)
Is he rich like me?
