Oh papa he said you must turn the lights down low
Oh papa he said that way no one will ever know
And papa he said what kind of trouble are you in?

Well papa he said you must go down on your knees
Oh papa he said you must do what it takes to please
Papa he said if youve done everything Ive told you to
And Ive never had the feeling in the past
And I never felt I needed to impress
I should know

Well papa he said you must walk up the hill
Oh papa he said if you dont someone else will
Papa he said if youve done everything Ive told you to
And Ive never had the feeling in the past
And Ive never felt I needed to impress

Well papa he said you must turn the lights down low
Oh papa he said that way no one will ever know
Papa he said if you follow him wherever he may go, dont say no

Oh papa he said you must walk up the hill
Papa he said if you dont no one else will
No one else will
Turn the lights down low
No one will know
Turn the lights down low
The lights down low...
