​Daddy Untwisted

This song is by Over The Rhine and appears on the album Eve (1994) and on the live album Live From Nowhere Volume Four (2009).

Are you my daddy
Are you

I don't wanna cut you up
Drink you from a paper cup
I don't wanna spit you out
Or kick you in the shin
I don't wanna knock you down
Be your mother be a clown
I don't wanna talk about
The shit you're really in
I don't wanna take a bow
No one's clapping anyhow
I don't wanna sneak around
And pray you'll understand
I don't wanna call your bluff
Enough's enough
I don't wanna see you
Chained up

Are you my daddy
Are you

I don't wanna ruffle you
Cut the deck and shuffle you
Don't wanna come to fisticuffs
Or stick you with a pin
I don't wanna argue
Hurt your pride or make you blue
Your tongue is forked and clearly
There are scales upon your skin
I don't wanna help ice crack
Give you a surprise attack
I don't wanna cut you slack
And watch it go to hell
I don't wanna tell you lies
Like presbyterians or spies
I don't wanna see you chained up

Are you my daddy
Are you

Don't you run away
Leave me like a rainy day
I don't wanna make you stay
Or stand up high above you
Don't want you to see me cry
I'm just trying not to lie
I don't wanna see you chained up
