Lyrics

Daddy's got a Mercury
Valerie Markell Gallagher

Verse

Tell you bout my papa’s car he keeps it out back
It’s a real showstopper as a matter of fact
Chopped top coupe, candy apple red
Hydraulics all around
Did you hear what I said?

Pre-Chorus

Grab the picnic basket
Roll the windows down
Come on let’s go for a ride

Chorus

Daddy’s got a Mercury coupe, coupe
A 47 Mercury coupe, coupe
Daddy’s got a Mercury
It’s as fine as it can be
Let’s go for a ride

Verse

Mama’s got a set of wheels painted jade green
Timeless classic, it’s a sweet machine
Wood grain interior, four on the floor
And the chief is looking out of the suicide doors

 

Pre-Chorus

Keys in the ignition
Turn the music on
Come on lets go for a ride

Chorus

I said now Mama’s got a Pontiac, Shoop shoo

35 Pontiac, Shoop shoo

Mama’s got a sweet – eet ride
Let’s go for a ride

Extro

Tell you ‘bout my papa’s car

(tell me ‘bout your papa’s car)
I’ll Tell you ‘bout my mama’s car
(tell me ‘bout your mama’s car)
Don’t have to go very far
Riding in my papa’s car
(riding in your mama’s car)
Tell you bout my papa’s car
(tell me bout your papa’s car)
Tell you ‘bout my mama’s car
(tell me bout your mama’s car)
Don’t have to go very far
Riding in my mama’s car
(riding in your mama’s car)
Come on, come on, come on
Let’s go for a ride

 

 

 

Mercury is a song written by Valerie Markell Gallagher about cherished vehicles lovingly restored and maintained by her parents. In the fall of 2013 Valerie took an on-line class through the Boston Berklee School of Music. Jimmy Kachulis's course on writing hit songs to be exact. "What a fantastic learning experience it was," she reports! "Daddy's got a Mercury" came about as part of an assignment that had the students write a song with a pre-chorus. She adds that, "due to the fact that the structure of the song form is very specific, and the topic I chose was one near and dear to me, the song practically wrote itself." All in all, "Daddy's got a Mercury", is one of her favorites she has created to date.
