"O Daddy Be Gay" as written by Judy Collins and Dp,....
There was an old man who lived under the hill
O daddy be gay
There was an old man who lived under the hill
If he ain't goin' away he'd be livin' there still
Daddy be gay if you can be

One day the devil came down to his plow
O daddy be gay
One day the devil came down to his plow
Said one of your family I'll have to have now
Daddy be gay if you can be

O tis not just your son or daughter I crave
O daddy be gay
Tis not your son or your daughter I crave
But your old baggin' wife I'll carry away
Daddy be gay if you can be

Ah take her away with all of my heart
O daddy be gay
Take her away with all of my heart
And I'll bet the two of you never will part
Daddy be gay if you can be

The devil he hoisted her up on his back
O daddy be gay
The devil he hoisted her up on his back
And off to hell with her in a pack
Daddy be gay if you can be

He set her down at the fork in the road
O daddy be gay
He set her down at the fork in the road
He said old woman you're a hell of a load
Daddy be gay if you can be

Then he carried her down to the gates of hell
O daddy be gay
He carried her down to the gates of hell
Said rake up the coals and we'll roast her well
Daddy be gay if you can be

One poor little devil looked over the wall

O daddy be gay
One poor little devil peeked over the wall
He said take her home daddy she'll murder us all
Daddy be gay if you can be

O the devil he hoisted her up on his back
O daddy be gay
The devil he hoisted her up on his back
And home again with her in a pack
Daddy be gay if you can be

The old woman went a whistlin' over the hill
O daddy be gay
The old woman went a whistlin' over the hill
The devil won't have me I wonder who will
Daddy be gay if you can be

There is an advantage we have over men
O daddy be gay
There is an advantage we have over men
We can go down to hell and come back again
Daddy be gay if you can be
