Papa, Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You - Lyrics

Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?
Papa, I'm feelin' so down and blue
You just gotta come around, please do
Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?

There's a blue dress at Dindy's I'd give the world to see again
I need some hand lotion and some powder from the five and ten
Buy us some chocolate and I'll make you a pretty pie
If you don't let me go I'll just die

Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?
Papa, I'm feelin' so down and blue
You just gotta come around, please do
Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?

I gotta pick up a pattern, Aunt Nora's makin' me a dress
I scrubbed it this mornin', what d'ya mean this floor's a mess?
I done everything you said, and then some ya didn't say to do
You just gotta take me with you

Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?
Papa, I'm feelin' so down and blue
You just gotta come around, please do
Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?

Looky here Papa, I found your other Sunday shoe
I shined it and I shined it 'til it looks all brand spankin' new
Seems like a year I've been waitin' for the day
If you let me go I won't get in your way

Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?
Papa, I'm feelin' so down and blue
You just gotta come around, please do
Papa, won't you let me go to town with you?
