Whole Day Through

Listen here:


My daddy was my mother’s fool And he would buy her anything she asked for Chocolate bars and shiny things The children all found it quite disgusting How he’d throw everything into her hands But when he died he died a happy man

Well now my mother was a sight to see You should have seen the way she’d flirt at soirees But my father would just smile as he watched her dance But when he died he died a happy man When he died he died a happy man

That’s why I wanna throw away the sum of my experience I’d rather live in ignorance the whole day through I wanna through away the sum of my experience I’d rather live in ignorance with you

The owl is a wise old bird His lonely eyes they tell no secrets

My daddy was my mother’s puppet And everyone is this town knew it But she missed him so when he went away And when she died she died a lonely maid When she died she died a lonely maid

That’s why I wanna throw away the sum of my experience I’d rather live in ignorance the whole day through I wanna through away the sum of my experience I’d rather live in ignorance with you
