Daddy-O

Song lyrics to Daddy-O, I’m gonna teach you some blues as performed in A Song is Born

Daddy-O, I’m gonna teach you some blues
From now on, that’s all you’ll be able to use
Do you hear me, Daddy-O
I’m gonna teach you some blues

However you wanted it, I sang your song
Whenever you wanted me, I tagged along
But that lipstick on your shirt isn’t mine
So I’m gettin’ off, it’s the end of the line
Do you hear me, Daddy-O
I’m gonna teach you some blues

(He told you that a woman was his religion)
But I didn’t hear him mention that he meant them all
(So now where you’re concerned he’s just a dead pigeon)
Well, I’ve got to be the only filly in the stall

(You’ve got a lot of fish a-waitin’ round to nibble)
And your baby’s got a line that they can’t overload
(So, Baby-O, you’re hardly in the mood to quibble)
Ah-hah, he’ll make me very happy if he’ll hit the road

You gave me the runaround, and that was wrong
You wanted to runaround, so run along
If we never meet again, it’s too soon
And I’ll make a bet you’ll be changin’ your tune
Do you hear me, Daddy-O
I’m gonna teach you some blues

(Instrumental Break)

However you wanted it, I sang your song
Whenever you wanted me, I tagged along
But that lipstick on your shirt isn’t mine
So I’m gettin’ off, it’s the end of the line
Do you hear me, Daddy-O
I’m gonna teach you some blues

I’ll teach you, I’ll teach you, I’ll teach you
I’m gonna teach you some blues
