Story Behind the Song

Another ancient idea that finally got finished. The bass line and the two chord vamp was written in 1983, the tune evolved over time...

Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright 2016 billdakemusic ASCAP

This Papa Don't Mind you sneekin' 'round our back door at night
Long as you keep the ruckus down
Don't cause them cats to fight
Bring me somethin' nice to warm me from the inside and I'll be your fool
As we huddle 'neath the evening's blanket
Playin' it cool

Papa Don't Mind, Papa Don't Mind

Papa Don't Mind you speakin' those words he's been longing to hear
Whispered sweet somethings, lips caressing these ol' fuzzy ears
Hot juicy fruit breath, thrills me to death
Brings a smile to my eyes
No denyin' you can get this boy sighin'
When you improvise

We'll travel the stars from our lawn chairs
Won't be no cause for alarm
If we just bundle up warm
Push ignition and hold on tight
Rev our motors, and start the flight

Papa Don't Mind you feedin' his fancy
Puttin' thoughts in his head
With notable dishes that exceed all his wishes
You bake some mean gingerbread
This is no "Camelot"
Still, I'm absorbed in the plot
And all its turns and twists
And the plans and the schemes as we rehearse the next scenes
Leaves no will to resist

You know that....
Papa Don't Mind
Papa Don't Mind
