The songs I write and perform are story songs about keeping life going in the right direction even if it feels like you fall off the track sometimes, overcoming obstacles and laughing at the things most people get too serious about!

Feels So Right to Me

Written By: Deedee O'Malley

Feels So Right to Me © Deedee O’Malley/DiCandia

Jamie's father was a preacher in a church in their town
She was never late for dinner
Dad was never around
Every Friday she'd go dancing with her favorite flame
Six foot two and very handsome
Lenny Brown was his name
They'd whirl and they'd twirl as they
fell to the ground
They'd whirl and they'd twirl as they tumbled around
Jamie's Daddy didn't wouldn't like it what he never did see
Jamie saying, "Ooh la Lenny love you feel so right to me "dweedleedeedop dweediddleedeedidleedee dweedleedeedop dweepdoppin deedledeedleedee dweedleedeedop dweediddleedeedidleedee"

Jamie's doctor called to tell her, "You're a mother to be"
Jamie's Daddy would have found out eventually so she told him about the baby but she couldn't say more as she spun like a top heading straight for the floor
She world and she twirled as he slapped her around
She world and she twirled heading straight for the ground
Jamie wiped her bloody lip crawling on to her knees , "I will have this baby Daddy cause it feels so right to me dweedleedeedop dweediddleedeedidleedee dweedleedeedop dweepdoppin deedledeedleedee dweedleedeedop dweediddleedeedidleedee"

Jamie and Lenny went off on their own
Had two more children while building their home
He worked everyday came home every night
He was there for his children and there for his wife
and he told bedtimes stories and tucked them in tight

Sarah finally met her Grandpa she was three and a half
He was grey and much more wrinkled than the old photograph
He said, "Baby please forgive me, I have made some mistakes,
I let everybody down but Grandpa's finally awake!”
She whirled and she twirled as she clung to his sleeve
She whirled and she twirled saying, "Grandpa Don't Leave!"
Jamie's father said, "Don't worry you are my family, I'll be staying for a while
cause this feels so right to me, dweedleedeedop dweediddleedeedidleedee dweedleedeedop dweepdoppin deedledeedleedee"
