"Daddy Go Down" as written by and David Byrne....
The sun sinks low in the Western Lands (Go Down, Daddy go down, daddy-o daddy go down)
A woman's heart is like the wind (Go down etc)
& He could not put her from his mind
& Love is strong and it will not die
(Go down, daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down
Go down daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down)

Protect me now from what I am (Go down etc)
For I'm in too deep and I cannot swim (Go down etc)
& He cursed his hands and he cursed his tongue
For what he'd said and what he'd done
(Go down daddy do down daddy-o daddy go down
Go down daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down)

Love love love's obsession What keeps man alive?
By some strange possession I stay safe inside
My heart's on probation It was my first time
This world, world of wonders, Stick your head outside

Now the ass can speak but he don't say much (Go down etc)
His words of wisdom come but once (Go down etc)
So build your house on solid ground
And stay indoors when the rain comes down

(Go down daddy go down, daddy-o daddy go down
Go down daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down
Go down daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down
Go down daddy go down daddy-o daddy go down)
