Album: Fireball (1971)

  • Well, I stood under your bedroom window, throwing up a brick
    No one came, I threw one more, that really did the trick
    Your daddy came and banged my head, he said "what kind of man
    Is this that's hanging 'round my girl?" and threw me in the car
    You're a farmer's daughter, you're a farmer's daughter
    Why do I always get the kinda girl I didn't oughta get?
    I won't get no more eggs and water, now I've laid the farmer's daughter

    Imagine I was a full-grown man and I could talk just right
    Could I come and see you here and do this every night?
    Wham, the door comes crashing down, your daddy's face all pale
    Says "come with me you hairy bum, I'll put you in my jail"
    You're a judge's daughter, you're a judge's daughter
    Why do I always get the kinda girl I didn't oughta get?
    Now I'm getting jail and torture, 'cause I made the judge's daughter

    Seems they're screaming law and order
    When I go with anyone's daughter

    Woman I should like some peace and daddy hold your tongue
    I think you're gonna die of fright when I tell you what I've done
    I can hear your tales and lies, you say I'm dumb and scraggy
    But man this dumb and scraggy is your daughter's baby's daddy
    She's a lucky daughter, such a lucky daughter
    Why did I always get the kinda girl I didn't want to get?
    Now I've got what I always fought for 'cause I've married a rich man's daughter

    Whaddaya think of that? Writer/s: IAN GILLAN, IAN PAICE, JON LORD, RITCHIE BLACKMORE, ROGER GLOVER
