Lyrics Poem by Shane Omar:

TELL ME DADDY
WHAT'S THE GOOD LIFE?
IS IT JUST MONEY
AND A SWEET WIFE?
OR IS IT A MIND
LIKE A SHARP KNIFE?
A MIND
LIKE A SHARP KNIFE.
OR IS IT
A SEARCHLIGHT SOUL
THAT KEEPS ON
BURNING?

TELL ME DADDY
WHAT'S THE GOOD LIFE?
IS IT JUST LUCK
AND HARD STRIFE?
OR IS IT HONEY
FROM THE BEE HIVE?
HONEY FROM THE BEE HIVE.
AND WILL MY SEARCHLIGHT SOUL
KEEP ON BURNING?

TELL ME DADDY
WHAT'S THE GOOD LIFE?
DOES IT HAPPEN
WHEN YOU DO RIGHT?
DOES THE SOUL
START FLASHING
LIKE A SEARCHLIGHT?

FLASHING LIKE A SEARCHLIGHT.
FLASHING LIKE A SEARCHLIGHT.
TELL ME DADDY.
