‘Daddy said i had to quit you’ by Captain B

Daddy said i had to quit you

Daddy said i had to quit you
She told the teary eyed lad
Smoking those gross cherry cigarettes
He thought made him look older, an intellectual
He’s an intelligent kid. I’ll give him that

You’re from the wrong side of the tracks
Daddy says so. Chiapas is no place
A stunning princess from Guanajuato
Could ever live

He was stunned

Sorry, Arturo, you’re a good guy
But you’re growing up quick
Rubi, gonna take some time still

If i run into him at La Chingada
I’ll buy him a drink
Display the smoking of hand-rolled
Strong and pure tobacco
As high fashion
While the bartender faithfully
Plays my list
Of essential
Rock’n roll

Spin the bottle
Point el joven
To the table of three
Waiting to be approached
After one more pull each
One for confidence
The other for longevity
Holster the bottle
And give the boy
With the regal name
A friendly shove
