lyrics

Whole Life Blues

Daddy was a singer daddy was a drunk
Just a drunken singer
He was murdered in a flop house broke and drunk
Now he’s broke and drunk forever
I never heard my mother sing a note
Well maybe once when she was cooking
A bum like my daddy got so lucky once
Cos she was so good looking

She took a nail, she hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall and it’ll be there forever
You can hand your favorite photograph
Hand your favorite cup
Take a trip through what’s come to pass
Drink it up

My mothers brother met my father when they were in prison
When he got out he gave his sister a call
He introduced them
It was nineteen sixty something
And everything was upside down
And jailbirds with pretty words
Could melt a young girls heart down

He took a nail, hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall it’ll be there forever
Grabbed his jacket, put on his walking shoes
Was last seen 6ft under
Singing the “I wasted my whole life blues”

The coldest heart that love has ever known
Passed itself off as a fire burning out of control
How are you supposed to know
If the love you give to the one you’re with
Is gonna be allowed to grow

He took a nail, hit it with a hammer
There it is in the wall it’ll be there forever
Grabbed his jacket, put on his walking shoes
Was last seen 6ft under
Singing the “I wasted my whole life blues”

Daddy was a singer daddy was a drunk
He was murdered in a flop house broke and drunk
Now he’s broke and drunk forever.

Warren Malone New York, New York

"Warren Malone has created an absolutely amazing album.“And The Ants Ate The Bee” never sounds the same twice/absolutely spellbinding/each listen feels fresh and different/The album is like a audio kaleidoscope/And then there’s that voice…an entirely unique instrument that sounds like a slightly androgynous soul singer/this album deserves repeated spins."
