Cannibals

Well he´s daddy´s little boy he plays with his toys
He holds on to his daddy´s hand
His daddy says sonny you´re a big strong boy
You´re gonna be a big strong man
And they go play catch they go play ball
They go take a walk along the sand
Big strong daddy and a big strong boy
Living in a big strong land

Daddy is he a goodie or a baddie
Daddy can I have a dinosaur
Once upon a time there were cannibals
Now there are no cannibals any more

Down in Louisiana there´s a hurricane coming
The little boy climbs the stairs
And all along the levee all the people come running
And the little boy´s saying his prayers
And a sleepy little laddie smiles up at his daddy
And he´s asking for his G.I. Joe
And daddy tucks him in with a kiss upon the chin
And says my little one I love you so

Lay down your head now don´t get out of bed
Don´t you let the bedbugs bite
It´s time to sleep now not another peep
And I´ll see you in the morning light
And then the radio was playing and the weatherman was saying
The hurricane had blown away
And daddy´s little boy was jumping up for joy
And he was singing at the break of day

Daddy is he a goodie or a baddie
Daddy can I be a warrior
Once upon a time there were cannibals
Now there are no cannibals any more

Yeah daddy is he a goodie or a baddie
Daddy why do people go to war
Once upon a time there were cannibals
Now there are no cannibals any more
