Yup De Father Knows Where De Hot Water Goes



it is goota be light de waitin fire time agin
to get de hot water to get de hot water heated
so de women do do dem hour long showers
dat de 2 daughters do do dem hour long showers
de wife she be quick she no do dem hour long showers
de daughters de be too slow take de hours and de hours
de daughters take de hours and de hours and de hours
it is not de good thing dem teenage daughters

de 2 of dem with de hours showers
it is de feed de fire feed de fire all night
it is de feed de fire feed de fire all night
it be too long it be too much every night
long every night de night time de slaveries
but it be it is de family fatha responsibilities
