Give Me Daughters

This song is by Jonathan Fire Eater and appears on the album Tremble Under Boom Lights (1996).

If ever this motorcycle go slip in the mud now
Well let me have these children to carry down the blood
If ever these ruby rings are slipping form my cold fingers
Let the be passed down now and honey let my ghost linger

Well I will raise em, I will raise em
I will raise, I will raise
I will raise em
Oh
In the city surrounded by water

Now give me daughters and make 'em one two three
I will raise them, they'll go to church with me
Everyday in every way I gave 'em all I had
And I walk along okay

Oh, oh!
(Tired or you're hungry
Or you've had too much sugar)

Now give me daughters and make 'em one two three
I will raise them they will look like me
And when they've send, send me away
Well I will always pray for a happy birthday

When the night coming down on crutches
You will never be alone
Oh you will become so beautiful to think of it makes me cry
And every month a brand new letter
Written from my motel kitchen
To tell funny jokes and a little hope
If you ever get tired of living

If ever this motorcycle
Should take a slip
Slip in the mud
Oh let me have children now
To carry down the blood

If you're hungry or you're tired or you had too much sugar
Oh, let me be the one that looks down on you

All right eh!
All right!
Come on!

Now give me daughters and make 'em one two three
I will raise them they'll go to church with me
Every day in every way I gave 'em all I had
And I walk along okay
