​Papa Was A Rascal

This song is by The Afghan Whigs and appears on the single Somethin' Hot (1998).

Well well
Well well

There was a sweet white woman
Down in Savannah, G.A.
She made love to my daddy
In front the K.K.K.

She made love to my daddy,
You know in front the K.K.K.

You know my papa went to Boston
And took a gangster's gal.
She stole away with my papa,
From old Italian Sal.

She stole away with my papa,
You know from old Italian Sal
Yeah! Yeah!

...

You know my momma and my sister,
They both begin to say:
"You know we all better watch out
For the C.I.A."

You know we all gotta watch out
Watch out for the C.I.A.
Yeah Yeah.

You know we all gotta watch out
Watch out for the C.I.A.
Yeah Yeah.

...

Are you bad?
Are you bad?
Are you bad?

Are you bad?
Are you back to be bad?

You know my papa was a preacher
And a lover too
Well if my papa was a rascal
Why can't I be one, too?

You know my papa was a rascal,
I think I want to be one, too.
Yeah!

You know my papa was a rascal,
I think I want to be one, too.
Yeah! Yeah!

Mmmmh...
