Daddy Could Swear - Pearl Jam

i loved my daddy...he was young and had a built in damn, yeah
and though he only stood about a five foot seven, my daddy was a heck of a man
he was loud and stormed and lead the way, though he'd stone ya in a very funny way, yeah
and most of the time he was looking at something, when he said, "only i can see"
daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write
one thing daddy sure could do right...
he could swear, yeah i declare
i said my daddy could swear, i declare
(will ya help me?)
i stained my dress out in the back porch
my sister still talked about the day
what got me to mine, he'd invite me to the best
and the whole damn thing gave way
(you should have been down)
daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write
one thing my daddy sure could do right...
he could swear, yeah i declare
mmm, my daddy could swear, i declare
my daddy was a bad mouth, yeah... what ya say? watch ya mouth?
my daddy was a bad mouth, yeah... what ya say? watch ya mouth?
my daddy was a bad mouth, yeah... what ya say? watch ya mouth?
motherf_cker!
daddy wasn't no scholar, no he didn't have a ph.d
and most of the time he had his back to the wall
but my daddy meant the world to me
i said mama got depressed at night, he'd walk through the house
but my daddy, curse was all he had
i woke up with love, and he understands that my daddy shouldn't feel my back
daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write
one thing daddy sure could do right...
he could swear, yeah i declare
mmm, my daddy could swear, i declare
(i didn't do it eddie, it was my sister mayleene!)
