Marina And The Diamonds - Daddy Was A Sailor Lyrics

Grandpa was a miner
And he gave me my black heart
Bitter rivers of black coal dust
Tore our country apart

Covered in coal dust
Waking up too early in the morning
Covered in coal dust
Waiting for the moment the canary sings

Mama was a mermaid
And a Carnaby Street gal
She could have been a model
But she spent her life mopping up spilt milk

Covered in sea salt
Would he, could he, be home when the stars came out to party
Covered in sea salt
Yeah I know it was my fault
That he always ran away because he didn't want me

Oh, daddy was a sailor
And he gave me a black heart
Oh, daddy was a sailor
The only man that could tear me apart

Daddy, daddy, daddy

Sister dances salsa
And she chants just like a queen
I was a non-believer when she told me I was free

Auntie Emy was a medium
And she worked the Ouija board
Seeking out the lost souls
And taking men back to the Lord

Oh but daddy still was a sailor
And he gave me a black heart
Oh, daddy was a sailor
The only man that could tear me apart

Daddy, daddy, daddy
