my lyricsbox
Daddy was a sailor, join the navy see the world. daddy was a sailor,
Boy he liked the pretty girls taught me how to dance,
taught me that jitter bug groove.
Taught me how to make romance yea, my daddy taught me how to move.
Daddy was a lover,he traveled all around the world...

Daddy was a lover, be he loved the pretty girls...
Taught me how to cuss, some folks didn't approve...
Taught me how to fight and fuss, yea, my daddy taught me how to move.

[Chorus]
Daddy wasn't always at home that much,
but somehow he managed to keep in touch,
Well he sent me a hula girl post card from Hawaii,
He did,and that was just enough for that six year kid.

W-e-l-l, I never joined the navy. but you know I've been around the world.
'Cause something that he gave me pleases all the little girls.
Move a little closer baby, please say yes, no don't say maybe.
The time is right and it feels good tonight...

I really think we're gonna move...
I really think we're gonna move...
Oooh, oooh, oooh,
This song is from the album "Symphonion Dream".
