Blind Melon – Dear Ol'dad lyrics

Come now and listen babe

I gotta reason why I behave

Like a child with a light in eyes

Running naked on a cold winter night

I am like a pigeon that is spreading

It's wings to fly away to better things

Like a hammer that has made

A dent in every little single cent you've spent

Said oh God you've got to help me a little bit

You've got to have a relief file for me

Now I know I'm always right, that's a

Thought that never even crossed my mind

Don't touch me there, I've gotta be pure

So smack that hand, and read this verse

So I wrecked your life, what the heck

My new found faith will pay by check

This life's took a toll on my soul

So this is me and that's my song

And I guess that you can see that we don't get along

I've shut the doors on what we had

So now she can sleep with her Dear ol' Dad

My eyes are dry and my hands are clean

And I can't believe all the things I've seen

Oh My God!
