DRAKE’S DAD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnFzpVrGA08
Drake’s Dad appears on Morning Report, Available NOW.
We were rolling down Beale Street in the Tennessee summer heat.
I can’t say it’s the land of free, but I tell you the booze runs cheap.
Then we met Drake’s dad, told him we came from Hamilton.
He said he knew a Canadian girl who had a thing for Americans.
And all the girls back home will tell you:
“You’re just some grown ass men, acting like boys.”
There’s some Peter Pan shit we’re trying to work out, but when Sunday comes around will you dig us all out?
So we can be in your arms again. Let me be in your arms again.
Because I hold you
Let me hold you
So won’t ya hold up
So I can come home to find you.
We took the 40 down to Nashville and started getting bit irrational.
The place was asking hard questions for a bunch of bachelors.
So we stumbled down Broadway with everybody getting sloppy.
We met some girls getting married. But they came here to party.
No one knows how we made it back to the hotel.
Adam took off his pants again – yes he did.
There’s some Peter Pan shit we’re trying to work out but when Sunday comes around will you dig us on out? So we can be in your arms again.
I do my best thinking in the shower. Sometimes I do my pre-drinking in the shower. I think about my neighbours and the politics of labour.
Between Karl and Groucho: I couldn’t tell you which I favour.
