6 Anyone's Daughter

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice) - from the Deep Purple album 'Fireball'

Early days of frustration are never forgotten. Two enraptured lovers, rising sap, chattering teeth and shaky legs….ah, but then 'father' comes into the equation……

Anyone's Daughter


I stood under your bedroom window
Throwing up a brick
No-one came I threw one more
That really did the trick
Your daddy came and banged my head
He said what kind of man
Is this that's hanging round my girl
And threw me in the can
You're a farmer's daughter
You're a farmer's daughter
Why do I always get
The kinda girl I didn't oughta get
I won't get no more eggs and water
Now I've laid the farmer's daughter

Imagine I was a full grown man
And I could talk just right
Could I came and see you here
And do this every night
Wham! The door comes crashing down
Your daddy's face all pale
Says come with me you hairy bum
I'll put you in my jail
You're a judge's daughter
You're a judge's daughter
Why do I always get
The kinda girl I didn't oughta get
Now I'm getting jail and torture
Cos' I made the judge's daughter

It seems they're screaming law and order
When I go with anyone's daughter

Woman I should like some peace
And daddy hold your tongue
I think you're gonna die of fright
When I tell you what I've done
I can hear your tales and lies
You say I'm dumb and scraggy
But man this dumb and scraggy is
Your daughter's baby's daddy
She's a lucky daughter
Such a lucky daughter
Why did I always get
The kinda girl I didn't wanna get
Now I've got what I always fought for
Cos I've married a rich man's daughter
