Tragically Hip – Don't Wake Daddy lyrics

Sled Dogs after dinner close their eyes on their howlin' ways
Kurt cobain, reincarnated, sighs and licks his face
Then they drift past strips of Seregeneti and the gates of sleepy hollow too
You can pause and wonder they pause and wonder yeah I pause and wonder too
Just don't wake Daddy

They can lay their heads on their futon beads so many miles from home
You teach your children some fashion sense and they fashion some of their own
For when policy wearing commune on the untamed land
Through white sheers whispers in their ears your dammed
And don't wake daddy

You can stuff you void with an asteroid that's hurtling towards the earth
You can drop the bomb that restores the calm then promises rebirth
Just don't wake daddy

It's a perfect time now for an electric choice
They fall asleep but us now it time to hear you voice

Sing to end all songs to end all songs
