Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Daddy Was A Sailor lyrics

Daddy was a sailor, join the Navy, see the world
Daddy was a sailor, boy, he liked the pretty girls.

Taught me how to dance, taught me that jitter bug groove
Taught me how to make romance, my daddy taught me how to move.

Daddy was a lover, he traveled all around the world
Daddy was a lover, be he loved the pretty girls.

Taught me how to cuss, some folks didn't approve
Taught me how to fight and fuss, my daddy taught mehow to move.

Daddy wasn't always at home that much
But somehow he managed to keep in touch
Well, he sent me a hula girl post card from Hawaii, he did
And that was just enough for that six year kid.

Well, I never joined the navy but you know I've been around the world
‘Cause something that he gave me pleases all the little girls.

Move a little closer, baby, please, say yes, no, don't say maybe
The time is right and it feels good tonight
I really think we're gonna move
I really think we're gonna move
I really think we're gonna move
I really think we're gonna move
...
