This is a song that as a child, I could never quite figure out why it didn't seem to flow as well as other songs - something seemed wrong with it. About the time I became a teenager, I realized it was the lack of rhyme that was bothering me. I also appreciated what the song was really portraying, and then I really liked the song. It wasn't until I was even older that I realized what the last verse was telling me about, "All a girl wants from a man is his "dough". Now I just smile as we sing it, and enjoy it.
We are missing Rachelle :(. It never sounds as good without one of the daughters!
Mason helped out on the guitar. He had never played this song before. I'll post the lyrics and cords.
