Daddy I’m Fine

Posted by shanoah on March 15, 2010

Mr. Rogers was a SEAL, Sean? I think the phrase you’re looking for is ordained Presbyterian minister. Though I suppose there could be similarities. And did you know that he was a major proponent of peoples right to record programs off the air on a vcr? (Nothing like Mr. Obama, IOW.)

A very different life, in any case, from Sinead O’Connor.

She was in a custody battle between her mother and father, and claims to have been abused by her mother. Eventually, she went to live with her father, and ended up in a school being run by the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity. A scary name if I ever heard it. Feels like rulers are involved.

She then ended up in a Quaker boarding school, dropped out, and joined a rock and roll band. Thus, this song, Daddy I’m Fine, appears to be fairly autobiographical. As well as including lyrics about wanting to fuck every man in sight.

It is a song about being strong and following what you believe. While having lots of sex, apparently. NSFW, obviously.

And here are the lyrics (snagged from sing365.com):

I was born in Dublin town
Where there was not too much going on down
For girls whose only hope
Was not to find a man who could piss in a pot
So early I heard my first guitar
And I knew I wanted to be a big star
And I told my poor worried father
Said I ain’t gonna go to school no more
Cuz see I wanna look cool and I wanna look good
With my hair slicked back and my black leather boots
Wanna stand up tall with my boobs upright
And feel real hot when the makeup’s nice
I get sexy underneath the lights
Like I wanna fuck every man in sight
Baby come home with me tonight
Make you feel good make you feel all right
I’m going away to London
I got myself a big fat plan
Gonna be a singer in a rock ‘n’ roll band
And I’m gonna change everything I can
Sorry to be disappointing
Wasn’t born for no marrying
Wanna make my own living singing
Strong independent Pagan woman singing
And I feel real cool and I feel real good
Got my hair shaved off and my black thigh boots
I stand up tall with my pride upright
And I feel real hot when the makeup’s nice
I get sexy underneath them lights
Like I wanna fuck every man in sight
Baby come home with me tonight
Make you feel good make you feel all right
I’m glad I came here to London
I’ve myself some big fat fun
And I have even made some mon’
I got the most angelic son
My baby daughter is golden
And I do what I like for fun
And I’m happy in my prime
Daddy I’m fine I’m fine Daddy I’m fine
Daddy I’m fine I’m fine Daddy I love you
