The Lyrics

well he's daddy's little fool, playin in the pool,
splashin all the water on the deck
daddy said, son, while I know you're havin fun,
but if it gets too wet it's gonna get wrecked
and the cheeky little laddie, splashes at his daddy
and he says hey geezer go,
daddy threw him in, and he stood up to his chin,
and said, a little thing I need to know

daddy? am I a goodie or a baddy?
daddy can I have a diving board
once upon I time I did cannonballs
I can't do cannonballs any more

now down in Louisiana the pool man is comin
checkin on the water clarity
dip a beaker in, and when the tests are in
he can say the pool has quality
and the little boy is playin, askin what he's sayin,
as he jumps into the pool again
spashin comin down, and the pool guy gave a frown
said hey kid keep that water in

daddy? am I a goodie or a baddy?
daddy can I have a diving board
once upon I time I did cannonballs
I can't do cannonballs any more

now shake your little head, man you're eyes are red,
daddy doesnt wanna sound too mean
why don't you come out, and son, you shouldn't pout,
just give a minute, check the chlorine
and the cheeky little laddie, pushes in his daddy
and the daddy yells hey you're bad
then the little guy, with a twinkle in his eye
says I think you are the worlds best dad

daddy? am I a goodie or a baddy?
daddy can I have a diving board
once upon I time I did cannonballs
I can't do cannonballs any more
