Daddy's brand-new bass boat
Cost him two weeks on the couch
Fourteen dozen roses and his boys night out
But when he test drove that new Bronco
Mamma test fly her fryin' pan
She said from now on the buck stops here in my hand

Chorus:
Daddy had a good name
Wore it right there on his shirt
Everybody knew he didn't run from work
Mamma cut corners and coupons
But still took time to dream
Never livin' without out means

(Chorus)
