My Father Loves Nikita Kruschev

Colm Gallagher
One fine day in May, the sun was on the sea I went for a swim, I took along my bottle Swam among the waves so very calm indeed And green as all the grass that grows from Howth to Dalkey Swam around Killiney Bay, lovely day Down below I see a couple of hungry fishes Then I went along my way, rounding the bay I thought I'd better say a prayer for dear old daddy Chorus: Holy moly me (X4) Stood upon a rock and looked out on the sea Sleeping like a baby long before he's born I felt the morning breeze so very sweet indeed Like fishes in the night and seaweed in the morning Took a towel and dried me back, lit up a fag Watched the smoky blue go blowing out in the sunlight Out beyond Killiney Bay, over the sea I thought I'd better say a prayer for dear old daddy Chorus Holy moly me (X4) I am happy here, my bottle is in my hand Half a quart of beer is all I really need I whistled out today, today I never planned Never knew that I could do without my brother Or me sister or me aunt, bad as they are Never knew that I could do without my mother Threw my bathing suit away, those who have seen it Once will never mind it, the others won't recognise it Chorus Holy moly me (X4) Ran along the sand and jumped from rock to rock Going to get a tan in places I never dreamed of Anyone I meet will surely get a shock Unless they're doing the same as me this lovely evening Turning cartwheels in the sand, over I go Standing on my head and landing on my bottom Such a lovely day today, happy I am That I've got more to do than worry about my father
