DADDY WHAT IF (Shel Silverstein) Bill Anderson - 1970 Bobby Bare and 5-year-old son Bobby Bare Jr. - 1973 BB Spoken Intro: I'd like to introduce you to the next superstar. Twenty years from now he's gonna be so ashamed of what he has done on this record that he's probably gonna sue me. And he and all of his friends are gonna be sitting around stoned and he'll say, "Look what the old man made me do!" Let's give a big round of applause for Bobby Bare, Jr. JR: Daddy, what if the sun stopped shining? What would happen then? BB: If the sun stopped shining, you'd be so surprised You'd stare at the heavens with wide open eyes, And the wind would carry your light to the skies And the sun would start shining again JR: But, Daddy, what if the wind stopped blowing? What would happen then? BB: If the wind stopped blowing, then the land would be dry And your boat wouldn't sail and, son, your kite couldn't fly And the grass would see your trouble and she'd tell the wind And the wind would start blowing again JR: But, Daddy, what if the grass stopped growing? What would happen then? BB: Well, if the grass stopped growing you'd probably cry And the ground would be watered by the tears from your eyes And like your love for me, that grass would grow so high Yes, the grass would start growing again JR: But, Daddy, what if I stopped loving you? What would happen then? BB: If you stopped loving me, then the grass would stop growing The sun would stop shining and the wind would stop blowing So you see, if you wanna keep this old world a-going You'd better start loving me again, again You better start loving me again You hear me, Bobby? BOTH: You better start loving me again You love me, Bobby? Yes You better start loving me again (Contributed by Mel - January 2008)
