(Chorus- woman's voice)

Daddy please don't
It wasn't his fault
He means so much to me
Daddy please don't
We're gonna get married
Just you wait and see

Every night, the same old dream
I hate to close my eyes
I can't erase the memory
The sound of Julie's cry

She called me up, late that night
She said, "Joe, don't come over,
My Dad and I just had a fight
And he stormed out the door!

I've never seen him act this way,
My God, he's goin' crazy
He said he's gonna make you pay
For what we done-- he's got a GUN!
So run, Joey run, Joey run!"

(Chorus- woman's voice)

Daddy please don't
It wasn't his fault
He means so much to me
Daddy please don't
We're gonna get married
Just you wait and see

Got in my car, and I drove like mad
'Til I reached Julie's place
She ran to me, with tear-filled eyes
And bruises on her face!

All at once I saw him there,
Sneaking up behind me (Woman's voice: Watch out! )
Then Julie yelled, "He's got a gun!"
And she stepped in front of me

Suddenly, a shot rang out
And I saw Julie falling!
I ran to her, I held her close
When I looked down, my hands were red
And here's the last words Julie said...

(Woman's voice)

Daddy please don't
It wasn't his fault
He means so much to me
Daddy please don't
We're gon... na get... mar... ried...

Run, Joey run, Joey run, Joey run, Joey run, Joey run, Joey ruuuuuunn!

    I know what it means but I mean forget the meaning just the fact that it so. Awesome! I'm 13 and this has been a favorite of mine like forever but everynight I sing it to my little brother and everynight he asks me to sing it again. Who doesn't love it. I mean the plot line behind it the beat and the pitch all make up for the perfect story.
