"Daylight Katy" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
She walks be the sea where the seaworld is
And she waits for the man to come
She lives in town with her high-heeled friends
And she knows it's a long way down
But she doesn't have to get up in the morning
With her hair so soft and long

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

She walks to the sea where the seaweed is
Where the rust and the dirt runs deep
She lives nine lives in her midnight world
While her old man's fast asleep
And she doesn't have to get up in the mornin'
With her hair so soft and long

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

She lives by the sea when the summer wind comes
And the sea don't mind at all
She talks to the sea when the sea runs wild
And the waves run steep and tall
And she doesn't have to get up in the mornin'
With her hair so soft and long

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home

Daylight Katy come on
Daylight Katy come on
If you can't follow me down
Daylight Katy go home
