Artist/Band: Gladys Knight
Lyrics for Song: Daddy Could Swear, I Declare
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Gladys Knight



Yeah, ooh, my mercy



Oh, how I remember daddy

He was young and had a built in tan, yeah

And though he only stood about a five feet seven

My daddy was a heck of a man, yes, he was, y'all



He loved us all and we knew it, yeah

Though he showed it in a very funny way

For most of the time he was a-cussin' and fussin'

When he said what he had to say



Daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write

But one thing daddy sure could do right



He could swear

Oh, Lord, I declare

Yes, he could, y'all

Daddy could swear

I declare, ooh, have mercy



I still remember seein' him in the backyard

Just a-pickin' and a-paintin' away

Ooh, my brothers and sisters still talk about

How daddy lost his temper that day

You see, he built a picket fence from the garage to the house



Well, Sam, tell me what I say

The same day the garbage man backed into the fence

And the whole darn thing gave way

You should have been there



Daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write

One thing daddy sure could do right



He could swear, I declare

Yes, he could, y'all

Daddy could swear, I declare

Yes, he could, y'all



Tell 'em about, tell about your daddy

My daddy was a bad mouth, y'all

Watch ya say, watch your mouth

My daddy was a bad mouth, y'all

Watch ya say, watch your mouth

My daddy was a bad mouth, y'all

Watch ya say, watch your mouth



My, my, my, my daddy wasn't no scholar, no

No, he didn't have Phd.

But in my eyes and deep down in my heart

My daddy means the world to me



He'll probably go out talkin' about daddy

Cursin', just a-fussin' and a-bein' mad

But I hope the good Lord will understand

That daddy's is just bein' my dad



Daddy couldn't read, daddy couldn't write

But one thing daddy sure could do right



He could swear

I declare, y'all

Yes, he could

He could swear

I declare



Have mercy

Cursin', just a-fussin', I declare

That my daddy's

He could swear, y'all

Talkin' about daddy, I declare, y'all



That my daddy's

He could swear

Talkin' about daddy

I declare, y'all



That my daddy's

He could swear, y'all

Talkin' about daddy

I declare, y'all
