Introduction by Jimmy Flemion


Song 4 off of our LP "Hopscotch Lollipop Sunday Surprise", is "Bad Daddy". It was written on Father's Day, June 20, 1992 outside on Prospect Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was inspired by a woman I worked with, who was talking about what a bad father her husband was and that she wished he would fall off the roof of her house. Spell dad backwards and it's the same thing. Fail to pat the patriarch on the back on daddy's day, and reap the wrath of your favorite father :<br&>

Lyrics


Bad daddy holds the secret of lovin'<br&> Bad daddy wants you to love him<br&> Bad daddy, shotgun in his hand<br&>

Bad daddy's children on crutches<br&> At 4:30 takes one out of the oven<br&> Bad daddy always gets his way<br&>

It started a long time ago<br&> They forgot father's day<br&>

Bad daddy's got you in stitches<br&> From watching him shavin' in the bathroom<br&> Bad daddy has a funny side<br&>

Bad daddy says your highchair accidentally fell over<br&> Now here comes rover the pitbull<br&> Bad daddy has a friend or two (omitted line)<br&> Bad daddy accidentally let him out<br&>

Bad daddy holds the secret of lovin'. Is he in fact displaying his secret or is he keeping his secret, secret. Bad daddy wants you to love him. That's all he asks. Bad daddy, shotgun in his hand. Like a father at a shotgun wedding, it seems he prefers this in his hand as part of his parenting technique or for other unspecified purposes. Bad daddy's children on crutches. Without father's support, crutches are substituted for support. At 4:30 takes one out of the oven. Ovens vary, cooking times may need to be adjusted. Bad daddy always gets his way. Without fail. It started a long time ago, they forgot Father's Day. So that's what's behind all of this. Cause and effect. Bad daddy's got you in stitches. He's hillarious. From watching him shavin' in the bathroom. If they hadn't watched him shave in the bathroom, there would be no stitches involved. Bad daddy has a funny side. Apparently a serious side as well. Bad daddy says your highchair accidentally fell over. That's what he says, but is that really the case? Now here comes Rover the pitbull. The only name that tops his as far as originality is concerned is Fido. Bad daddy accidentally let him out. The lesson here is, even if you don't feel like buying him a tie at least get him a Father's Day card.<br&>
