  1. PAPA

Lyrics

PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON, GOT TO BE PAST MIDNIGHT
AND MAMA’S JUST THERE CRYING WONDERIN’ IF IT WILL BE ALRIGHT

PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON, BRIGHT WIRES IN A DARK LAND
HE SAYS I’LL DO WHAT I GOT TO AND THE ROOM FALLS SILENT

CHORUS - LANG, LANG, LANG…

WELL IT’S BEEN LIKE THIS SINCE THE VULTURES WENT AWAY
AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT I HEARD PAPA SAY
BUT BOY UNDERSTAND THAT WE AIN’T MEANT TO BREAK
AND OUR HEADS WERE NEVER MEANT TO HANG

SO, PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON ‘CAUSE IT’S TIME TO GET OUT TO
A 4 A.M. CATHEDRAL WHERE COMMUNION’S ON A STEEL PEW
AND WHERE PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON, JUST SWINGIN’ DOWN A HAMMER
FOR THE THOUGHT OF ALL HIS ANGELS KEEPS HIM TWELVE HOURS STEADY THERE

(CHORUS)

OH IT’S SO DANGEROUS JUST GIVIN’ WHAT THEY ASK
YOU MAKE A LAND OF WOLVES SOON TURN IN TO RATS
CAN’T DO NOTHING BUT FIND SCRAPS AT THE DOOR
BABY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PAPA AIN’T HERE NO MORE

‘CAUSE PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON, GOT TO BE PAST MIDNIGHT
AND MAMA’S JUST THERE CRYING, PAPA SAYS IT WILL BE ALRIGHT (ALRIGHT)
YEAH, PAPA’S GOT THE LIGHT ON AND HE’S GONNA KEEP THE LIGHT ON

(CHORUS)
