about

The only way this song doesn't make us sound like total pigs is if you understand that the male protagonist in this tune represents ROCK N ROLL itself and we (musicians) are his long-suffering girlfriend. It came about after Seamus wrote a Facebook status update ("Rock n roll, I'm glad you're in my life, but we need to talk") after a particularly enthusiastic late night jam. Peter found this amusing, so we ran with it...

lyrics

10 MILLION DOLLAR DADDY

You may find me arrogant and petulant and rude.
What can I say?
A living legend often gets misunderstood.
(It's true a living legend often gets misunderstood.)

Now I'm not trying to prove a point,
Because clearly I am right.
We all know who you go home with,
At the end of the night.
(Yes we all know who she goes home with at the end of the night.)

I'm your 10 Million Dollar Daddy,
Shaking down the neighbourhood.
This ain't no small-fry, baby,
We're talkin' things of stone and wood!
(This ain't no small-fry baby. He's talking things of stone and wood)

Ah Cahmaan!
You know you love it,
You know it makes you sweat!
All it takes is "1,2,3,4!"
And your panties get all wet!
(Yes all it takes is 1,2,3,4 and her panties get all wet.)

And you remind me of a dirty girl,
That I once met.
Hey Rock n' Roll,
I'm glad you're in my life...
And yet...
Rock n' Roll, my love,
We need to talk.
We need to talk.

Now I remember long ago,
The first time that we met,
I looked into your longing eyes and said:
"You got a cigarette?"
(He looked into her longing eyes and said:
"Gimme a cigarette!")
I brazenly blew in your face,
You muttered not a word.
'Twas there and then you took my hand,
And shoved it up your skirt!
('Twas there and then she took his greedy hand,
And shoved it up her skirt.)

And you remind me of a dirty song,
That I once heard.
Hey, Rock n' Roll,
I'm glad you're in my life,
And you know that I'm your bird.
But Rock n' Roll, my love,
We need to talk.
We need to talk.
