Growing up I never knew why daddy was so depressed
HE ALWAYS PAID HIS INTEREST BUT HE NEVER GOT OUT OF DEBT
If I saw him now I guess I'd feel real old
I had my baby girl in a place of rock n' roll

Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
That's what everybody'd say
Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
Until he had me, and then he threw his dancing shoes away

I got a photograph of daddy but don't mean he's here
Lost behind a moustache and a tank top and a beer
Well I guess I get better too but nothing no one says is true
Dancing to a dancing beat, I call them daddy's happy feet

Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
That's what everybody'd say
Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
Until he had me, and then he threw his dancing shoes away

When I finally laid my cold and creaky bones to rest
I hope I'm not a mystery to those who knew me best
But if all my eulogies are all corny fantasies
I'll just put on my favorite groove cause that's what we would always do

Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
That's what everybody'd say
Daddy, daddy was a real good dancer
Until he had me, and then he threw his dancing shoes away
