Gone Daddy Gone

Album: Violent Femmes (1983)
  • Beautiful girl lovely dress
    High school smiles oh yes
    Beautiful girl lovely dress
    Where she is now I can only guess

    'Cause it's gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone away
    'Cause it's gone daddy gone
    Your love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone away

    When I see you
    Eyes will turn blue
    When I see you
    Thousand eyes turnin' blue

    'Cause it's gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone away
    Yeah it's gone daddy gone
    Your love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone away

    Tell by the way you that you switch and walk
    I can see by the way that you baby talk
    I can know by the way you treat your man
    I can love you baby til it's a cryin'

    'Cause it's gone daddy gone
    Your love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Yeah it's gone daddy gone
    The love is gone

    Beautiful girl lovely dress
    Fifteen smiles oh yes
    Beautiful girl lovely dress
    Where she is now I can only guess

    'Cause it's gone daddy gone
    Your love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Gone daddy gone
    The love is gone
    Yeah it's gone daddy gone
    The love is gone away Writer/s: Gordon Gano, Willie Dixon

  • Jeffery Barber from HellThis song is a darkly prophetic song about the chemical weapon known as "Orchid". It will be one of the biblical plagues of the tribulation.

    The chemical is genetically engineered to attach itself to women of one of three genetic groups. It is represented on the murals at the DIA.

    It will be rained down onto the masses and turns the whites of the eyes a pale blue color, and causes uncontrollable tearing.

    The line in the song " Thousand eyes turning blue"

    Listen to the emphasis gordan places on the word "cryin".

    The poison takes two weeks to do its worst, hence the " fifteen times"

    It is a horrible and agonizing way to go. Hence, "violent femmes".
  • Dave from St Paul, MnAm I seriously only the first comment?
