In the later forties
When Diddy Levine lived with Eunice King
He gave her the ring that she wore
Janice the smiling daughter
Who came from a marriage way before
But Eunice was the father that she always saw
Though they never, never, never, never, never, never told her
She always knew the score
You see kids were so much wiser after the wars
But Diddy hadn't had enough, she had to get some more
On a ration piece of paper
She wrote 'Eunice, I'm not sure'
And with her child in her arms
She went looking for a fling
Besides, she didn't like the name 'Mrs. King'
The first time that she heard Damper Dan
Was on the radio
Crooning at a volume that was way, way down low
Diddy was surprised to hear that Damper's name was Dan
Soon after he was a calling
And he asked, begged and pleaded for her hand
Damper's heart was dampened
When Diddy answered "No, no, no, no, no"
But if she changed her mind she said "Dan, I'll let you know"
With her child in her arms
She went looking for a man
Besides she didn't like the name Damper Dan
Janice the smiling daughter grew up to be a teenage queen
Through all of her mother's lovers
She kept the name 'Levine'
Behind the picture house she first made her scene
Liked a boy called Allister
Who was dating a friend called Celine
And Celine wasn't mad when Janet came in between
But Allister got scared when he heard
And he joined the U.S.A. Marines
Inheritance you see runs through every family
Who is to say what is to be, is any better
Over and over it goes goodness and badness wind blow
Over and over, over and over
Over and over and over and over and over and over and over
The good wind and the bad wind blow
