lyrics

Woke up in someone’s daughter’s room
Did I imagine she was you?
When you come to me in dreams,
I wonder, are you dreaming of me too?

Low talkers I can’t abide
Slow walkers, step aside
Just let me twirl my sign from side to side
“Check your oil and change your tires!”
Yeah, yeah!

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son, he don’t rock and roll

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son don’t rock and roll

I’m old enough to be my father
Lookin’ more like Jeffrey Dahmer
And I’ve got nothing to my name
I wouldn’t sell for the right offer

Been to Oildale last week
Looked in on the secret factory
Where Lockheed unleashed
That Bakersfield sound back in 1953
Yeah, yeah!

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son, he don’t rock and roll

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son don’t rock and roll

I bought a new pair of shoes
I can pick up some tacos
Come over to your place
And we can watch the news
Like we used to do

I’m an atheist folk singer
Crooning in this Christian country band
I sing of love and life and Jesus Christ
But I don’t give a good goddamn

Maybe the country’s breaking down
Maybe the whole world’s breaking down
Maybe the Second Coming is here at hand
And I’m the last godless fool around
Yeah, yeah!

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son, he don’t rock and roll

Your daughter don’t dance
And your son don’t rock and roll

It’s a lovely day
So glad you made it
It’s such a perfect day
To give everything away

It’s a lovely day
So glad you made it
It’s such a perfect day
To give everything away

It’s a lovely day
So glad you made it
It’s such a perfect day
To give everything away

It’s a lovely day
So glad you made it
It’s such a perfect day
To give everything away
