Daddy Was a Sailor



Grandpa was a miner
And he gave me my black art
Glittered rivers of black coal-dust
Tore our country apart,

Covered in coal dust
Waking up too early in the morning
Covered in coal dust
Waiting for the moment the canary sings

Mama was a mermaid
And a Carnaby Street gal
She could have been a model
But she spent her life mopping up spilt milk

Covered in sea salt,
Would he, could he be home when the stars came out to party,
Covered in sea salt,
Yeah I know it was my fault,
But he always ran away 'cause he didn't want me.

Oh, daddy was a sailor
And he gave me a black heart
Oh, daddy was a sailor
The only man that could tear me apart

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
Daddy, Daddy, Da-a-ddy.

Sister dances salsa,
And she cha-cha's like a Queen,
I was a non-believer when she told me I was free,

Aunty Emmy was a medium,
Oh she worked the Ouija board,
Seeking out the lost souls,
And taking them back to the Lord.

Oh, but Daddy still was a sailor,
And he gave me a black heart,
Daddy was a sailor,
The only man that could tear me apart,

Oh, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh,
Ahh, Ahh a.
