Moira Cameron Lyr Req: Don't Jump off the Roof Dad (47) RE: Lyr?? Don't jump off the roof Dad 10 Jun 98


You know, I've found the tune to this song, along with the subject matter, fits well with Robert Service's poem/song called the Breadknife Ballad. The chorus goes:
    Mother, please don't stab father with the breadknife!
    Remember 'twas a gift when you were wed.
    But if you must stab father with the breadknife,
    Please, mother, use another for the bread!
