Lyrics

“Daddy”



I think I feel you
Every time I look at your shelf
I would’ve liked to have known you
So in times like this I could ask for your help
Sometimes I need you when I feel alone
And can’t quite find me
I’m in need of direction
Don’t know north from south
from west from east

Ahhh

CHORUS
Daddy, can you help me
with the finding of myself?
Will I find the answer
in a book upon your shelf?
Daddy, can you hear me?
I am calling out your name
I lost you at age six,
and the world called it a shame
Ain’t it a shame!

Sometimes Mom
Would sit me down and tell me about you
She never said you were perfect,
But I think that’s what I like most about you
So when I call your name
In the morning or in the night
Just sit there and listen
And everything will be alright

CHORUS

Fa la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Fa la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la

Fa la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la

Fa la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la la



Woh-oh-oh!
