Danko Jones – Papa lyrics

Hello Miss world and all you beautiful girls
From New York to Chicago, London to Toronto
I think about you every night
The time we had felt so right
'Cause it's time for you to now
That it's time for me to go and I'm leaving now


Hey Papa, I'm just like you
Hey Papa, I'm a rolling stone too

I was born a lion and like a cat I'm gonna dance
Barcelona to 'Frisco
Stockholm to Oslo
On the road is my religion
You gotta make a quick decision
'Cause it's time for you to now
That I'm leaving now


Adhere to the call of the wind and the road
Don't look back baby and don't move slow
I know you want me for one more night
'Cause when we're together it just feels so right
One day I'm here the next I'm outta sight
Just let it be let things take flight
