So Long Dad

Harry Nilsson

Home again and the streets are not much cleaner
And the quaint old south side scenery
Is quaint no more
Just older than before
Go up the stairs and down the hallway
To my Daddy's door

Your son is home, Dad, and he's found girl
Well she's the greatest girl in all the world
I think you'll like her, Dad, I hope you do
But if you don't, that's all right too

What's new? Do you still work at the drug store?
Is that true? Still polishing the same floor
I miss my good ol' Dad, my but
I'm glad to see ya home again
No I won't be staying here, Dad

Come and see us, Papa, when you can
There'll always be a place for my old man
Just drop by when it's convenient to
Be sure and call before you do

So long Dad, so long Dad
So long Dad, so long Dad
So long Dad, so long Dad
