Various Artists – That's When I'll Come Back To You lyrics

Now daddy, I'll treat you right
And promise never to fight
If you'll only come back to me

Well, I'll work hard every day
And you can have all of my pay
If you'll only try and agree

Well, you can knock me down
Knock me up and even kick me
Or black both my eyes
But daddy, please don't you quit me

I will rub and scrub and eat the suds
If you'll only come back to me, sweet papa

A dollar when the rain turns the snow when it's ninety below
That's when I'll come back to you
When I'm hungry and I'm dying
And I'm starving and there are no shoes on my feet
Well, then I'll cogitate over your veritability

Now you may have found some other cat
Oh, I may agree to that
Yes but, darling, you lost your rainy mind
A gold mine, silver mine, a cobalt mine
When you lost me

Know when box cars are flying around
And when blue turns to brown
Oh, then I might abandon the canyons in my mind
Then soar into the air with a sorbet blither over you
Darling, you fake
