Dear 53310761



You might wonder what the hell this song is about, until you hear a certain name mentioned past the halfway mark. Even then, you have to know your pop music history to figure it out.

I’m a Ding Dong Daddy from Dumas



Gangsta rap!

Well a pretty little mom tried to put me on the run

But I had to burn her down with a Thompson Gun

I'm a ding dong daddy from Dumas babe

You oughta see me do my stuff

I'm a ding dong daddy baby

And liquor is my racket

Lots of times when things are dull

I deal in other traffic

I can sell you morphine coke or snow

Take a little shot and you're raring to go
