DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING

V-1
NOW DADDY IT SEEMS,
IS BEHIND TIMES: BUT NOT THEN.
YEAH, WHEN THE MUSIC BEGINS,
DADDY WOULD BEGIN TO SWING.
HE WOULD SWING MY MOTHER AROUND THE ROOM.
AS HE KNEW HOW LOUD HE COULD YELL AT THE MOON.
YES, LET SAY IT AGAIN,
NOW, DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING.

CHORUS
NOW, YOU WOULD NEVER HEAR DADDY SING,
BUT I TELL YOU DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING.
WHETHER ON A DANCE FLOOR, IN A FIGHT,
OR IT CAME TO TEACHING ME, WRONG FROM RIGHT.

V-2
YES, SOMETIMES DADDY WOULD GO TO A BAR,
AND SOMETIMES IN THE NIGHT, THINGS WOULD GO TO FAR.
SOMEONE ON MY MOTHER, WOULD MAKE A MOVE, NOT A GOOD THING,
FOR A FIST, DADDY REALLY KNEW HOW TO SWING.
SOMETIMES, IT IS NO WONDER,
WHEN DADDY SWUNG, IT WAS LIKE THUNDER.

CHORUS
NOW, YOU WOULD NEVER HEAR DADDY SING,
BUT I TELL YOU DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING.
WHETHER ON A DANCE FLOOR, IN A FIGHT,
OR IT CAME TO TEACHING ME, WRONG FROM RIGHT.

BRIDGE
YES, DADDY TREATED EVERYONE THE SAME,
ESPECIALLY: WHEN IT CAME TIME TO SWING.

V-3
 NOW, WHEN I DID WRONG AGAIN AND AGAIN,
YOU KNOW THAT BELT DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING.
SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT DADDY, AND HIS TIME,
BUT DADDY REALLY THEN KNEW HOW TO SWING.

CHORUS
NOW, YOU WOULD NEVER HEAR DADDY SING,
BUT I TELL YOU DADDY KNEW HOW TO SWING.
WHETHER ON A DANCE FLOOR, IN A FIGHT,
OR IT CAME TO TEACHING ME, WRONG FROM RIGHT.

WHETHER ON A DANCE FLOOR, IN A FIGHT,
OR IT CAME TO TEACHING ME, WRONG FROM RIGHT.
