about

A song about the great musical director David Palmer who worked for many years with Jethro Tull. She's now called Dee

When she gets up in the morning
She's a woman feeling free
Her kids still call her Daddy
But she's signing now with Dee

lyrics

Dee
(John the Revelator/Tom Huissen)

He never felt like a bloke
Wild man or rock ‘n roll
He never felt strong enough
Long time on the dole

Girlie arms and tiny wrists
Covering his face at night
Shy away from people, terrified
Never got into a fight

Then he joined a rock and roll band
Touring all over the globe
Out on stage and making a stand
Wearing a colourful robe

It felt like jumping from a parachute
It hit him like an air attack
Ground coming up, no stopping now
There was no turning back

Such a well-known male performer
Always able to turn a phrase
Now out on stage as a female
Finally coming face to face

Then he joined a rock and roll band
Touring all over the globe
Out on stage and making a stand
Wearing a colourful robe

When she gets up in the morning
She’s a woman feeling free
The kids still call her daddy
But she’s signing now with Dee
