Tell me a story tell me a story
Tell me a story remember what you said 
You promised me you said you would 
You gotta give in so I'll be good
Tell me a story then I'll go to bed

Oh worry worry weary ends ma day
Comes the time to go home 
Without ma raise in pay
Home by the fire where a man can just relax
Slippers there by the chair
Not a worry not a care
Along comes junior swinging his little axe

Tell me a story tell me a story
Tell me a story remember what you said
Tell me about the birds and bees 
How do you make a chicken sneeze
Tell me a story then I'll go to bed

Came so late one evening last July
Played a little the poker the time had passed me by  
Shoes in my hand and my darlin' wife in bed
Up the stairs sayin' a prayer
Then a voice comes through the air

Hi there daddy remember what you said
Tell me a story tell me a story
Tell me how your eyes are glassed
Because it's only if your bad
Tell me a story then I'll go to bed

Once a upon a time I remember long ago
Don't go back in years through your memories kinda slow
Stop your noisy talkin' till I've finished with ma tale
Once upon
Upon a what
Upon your back you'll get a swat

Tell me about the fishy cause it's bigger than a whale
Tell me a story tell me a story
Tell me a story remember what you said
You promised me you said you would 
You gotta give so I'll be good

Here's a tale you'll never forget
Whack whack whack
Ouch ma tails all red
And now get off to bed  
Aw come on daddy tell me a story hee hee
