DADS : A BRIEF HISTORY

 

 

 

 

"Eight years old with a flour sack cape

Tied all around his neck

He climbed up on the garage

Figurin' what the heck

He screwed his courage up so tight

The whole thing come unwound

He got a runnin' start and bless his heart

He headed for the ground

 

 

                        

  

           

                     

 

 

 

 

 

     

 

All grown up with a flour sack cape

Tied all around his dreams

He's full of piss and vinegar

He's bustin' at the seams

He licked his finger and checked the wind

It's gonna be do or die

He wasn't scared of nothin, Boys

He was pretty sure he could fly

 

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

     

 

 

 

Old and grey with a flour sack cape

Tied all around his head

He's still jumpin' off the garage

And will be til he's dead

All these years the people said

He's actin' like a kid

He did not know he not could fly ...

 

..... So he did.

 

 

 

 

 

         

 

    

 

 

He's one of those who knows that life

Is just a leap of faith

Spread your arms and hold your breath

Always trust your cape"
