lyrics

Vocal: Jilline Ringle

QUARTER TO SIX,
SATURDAY NIGHT,
I’M GONNA SHOW MY MAN
I’M ERUDITE.
ROMANTIC DINNER.
TABLE FOR TWO.
CHAMPAGNE AND CANDLE-LIGHT,
THEN WHEN WE’RE THROUGH,
A CLASSIC DRAMA
WITH A PASSIONATE THEME.
A TRAGIC DE LA BARCA
OR A LESSER RACINE.
THE AUTHOR DOESN’T MATTER
BUT TO MAKE MY MAN SMILE,
SATURDAY NIGHT
I NEED A PAIR ON THE AISLE.
____________

DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
ONLY THE DREAMERS,
CAN IMAGINE HIS FEMURS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
HIS EXTENSIVE DIGITORUM,
IS THE MODEL OF DECORUM.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
HONEY, HIS SARTORIOUS.
IS NUTHIN’ SHORT OF GLORIOUS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
FROM HIS GLUTS.
DOWN INTO HIS BOOTS.
______________

I’M NOT ASKIN’
FOR ROWS “E, F, OR G”.
WE’LL BE JUST AS HAPPY
IN “S, T, U, OR, V”.
DISTANCE FROM THE STAGE
CAN BE MORE THAN A MILE.
THE ONLY STIPULATION IS
THEY BE ON THE AISLE.
WHENEVER HE SITS
IN THOSE TIGHT LITTLE ROWS,
MY MAN’S GOT HIS KNEES
TUCKED UP UNDER HIS NOSE.
AND IT CAN BE UNCOMFORTABLE
AS ONE MIGHT EXPECT,.
STANDIN’ BY THE THEATER DOOR
COMPLETELY ERECT!

DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
TIBIALIS ANTERIOR,
IS OH, SO SUPERIOR.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
LET ME TELL YOU HIS QUADS,
WERE CONSTRUCTED BY THE GODS!
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
EVEN HIS PATELLAS,
ARE ABSOLUTELY STELLAS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
DADDY LONG LEGS.
ANY OTHER LOCATION
CUTS OFF HIS CIRCULATION,
SO DON’T CRAMP HIS STYLE,
GIVE MY MAN A SEAT ON THE AISLE.

DON’T CRAMP HIS STYLE,
GIVE MY MAN A SEAT ON THE-
AND WITHOUT DISTORTION,
HE’S COMPLETELY IN PROPORTION!
SO DON’T CRAMP HIS STYLE,
GIVE MY MAN –
A SEAT ON THE AISLE....
OH, DADDY, YOUR LEGS ARE
SO LONG!
