​Daddy's a Postman

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Human Soul (1989).

We wake up every morning Rush downstairs to the car
Jump inside it with mummy Her eyes are shining like stars
The sun's like something that God sent The air's as fresh as our clothes
We're going to the golden arches Our life's so perfect it glows
And everything's fine Everything's fine

Daddy's a postman Daddy's a postman
Daddy's a postman Daddy's a postman

When we are old We won't have poverty or destitution
We will be able to Afford a nursing home or an institution
And Daddy's a postman (3 times)

Black skin white picket fences Jewels we bought for a dime
When I came to my senses The golden arches were mine
And everything's fine Everything's fine

Daddy's a postman Daddy's a postman
