Track Name: Pray My Dear Daughter
Pray My Dear Daughter

Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a folk singer
Oh you know they never sing in tune
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a folk singer
They’re weird and they whine and they never fill a room

Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a deep-sea diver
I would not want you to get the bends
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a ticket inspector
I would not want you to have no friends

Oh I hope you travel
But not too far
So you are always close
To your dear Papa

Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a preacher
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a priest
Pray My Dear Daughter
Oh when you marry
You marry someone
Who can hold their drink at least

Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry an astronaut
It’s always good to have two feet on the ground
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a lion tamer
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t you marry a clown

Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a comedian
We all know they are a miserable bunch
Pray My Dear Daughter
Don’t marry a journalist
We all know they never come back from lunch

Oh you may think I don’t want you
Marrying anyone at all
But no I want to hear
The wedding bells of St Paul

Pray My Dear Daughter
You’ll grow up happy
As happy as any daughter of mine could be
Pray My Dear Daughter
Oh when you marry
You marry someone who is nothing like me
