Daddy's Been Around The House Too Long

Verse 1
(Daddy's been around the house too long
He's watchin' TV drinking beer and singing crazy songs
He don't ever yell at us so something must be wrong
'Coz daddy's been around the house too long)
 
Verse 2
(Daddy he just says the times are bad
He gets up drinks his coffee and reads the want ads
Then he wanders round the house or maybe mows the lawn
Daddy's been around the house too long)
 
Verse 3
Oh I wanna hear that factory whistle blow just the way it used to sound before
And maybe it'll scare away the wolf that's at my door
I wanna hear that factory whistle blow
 
Verse 4
(Daddy used to spend his weekends lazy now momma says he's bout to drive her crazy
He's in the kitchen fussing till the Secret Storm comes on
Daddy's been around the house too long)
I wanna hear that factory whistle blow yeah daddy's been around the house too long
 
Thanks!
