Lyrics

sugar's daddy

Written By: Perrin Manzer Allen/Andrew Wale

Da, da, daddy, da, da , dum, dum etc.
La, la, la, la etc.

Sugar Daddy sweeten baby-bowl
He know jelly-rollin’ her thing.
Daddy sugar-up his baby-soul
Heaven-honey flow-a-she sing –

La, la, la, la etc.

Daddy fingerin’-a honey-heart
Pluck-a soft-n-warm Sugar-string.
Lovin’ Dadda-that-a-better art
Sugar pucker up-a-she sing,
And she sing -

La, la, la, la etc.

Sugar shimmy for her Daddy’s eye-
So he rise-him dance in a ring.
She-gon’ shake-a-thing for other guy
‘Cep’-her-Daddy sigh when-e-sing –

La, la, la, la etc.

Da, da, daddy, da, da , dum, dum etc.
And she sing –

Don't you think it's funny?

Written By: Perrin Manzer Allen/Andrew Wale

Well he stared into a face he couldn't see
Closed his eyes and saw the way things ought to be
"Don't you think it's funny?" he said
"To open doors without a key."

Every day was just another day apart
Every hour struck a blow against his heart
"Don't you think it's funny?" he said
"To put the end before the start."

CHORUS:
But a boy burns brighter as he turns and walks away
When the words sound clearer but there's nothing left to say
And the joke is over
We're rolling around in the aisles.

Tried to make the most of touches in the dark
Dug his fingers in but never left a mark
"Don't you think it's funny?" he said
"That love is humourless and stark."

CHORUS

I know
The world is hard and dark and mean and cold
I know
That love is small and thin and tired and old

I said: "You know I never said I wanted this....
It just seemed to me that you were offering less...
And having thought about it a bit
I think
I'd be
Just fine
Without the
Irony
And wit
Forgive me

CHORUS

Too late in the day

Written By: Perrin Manzer Allen/Andrew Wale

Can’t touch me now
I’m free
Thought I’d fall and die
But look at me
And you will see
I survive

Can’t touch me now
I’m free
And I’ll feel alive
Eventually
For as you see
I survive

Dawn begins a day in the life
Of a man who only takes a step
To leave a step behind him in the past

Dawn begins a day in the life
Of a man who lives from hand to mouth
To breathe to feel to learn to love too late

Late in the day
But I’m alive
And as they say
I survive

Can’t touch me now
I’m free
So I live my lie
And finally
There’s only me
I survive

Dawn begins a day in the life
Of a man who only takes a step
To leave a step behind him in the past

Dawn begins a day in the life
Of a man who lives from hand to mouth
To breathe to feel to learn to love too late

Late in the day
But I’m alive
And as they say
I survive
