When all your good intentions just leave you feeling old
And your latest inventions have all left you feeling cold
Well its then the chips it says, “Then come over man have no fear”

She says, “Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here”

So all your grand ambitions they’re doing what they’re told
Down at the bottom of the river where the old wife fingers go
They say the women dug this river
They filled it with their tears

And Daddy died last year
Well I wish he were here

So if you want to see me I’m at the bottom of the stair
It’s the place where no one looks for me it’s the place where no one dares
And if you think the times have been changing it’s anywhere but here

See, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

So the Congressmen and the concubines are all happy in their cage
And women who surround them are all cute and under-age
At least we’ll be remembered screaming, “Revolution’s near!”

And daddy died last year
Well I wish he were here

So the lawyers completed me with papa’s old harpoon
Hold it in a glove made of his barren woman’s womb
She says she wants my bones to decorate his tomb

See, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

Oh, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here
