The Lyrics

I must admit I am daddy's girl. Even past thirty and having family of my own, my father is still the most important man in my life. The thermal protection suit is called "the silvers".
(heavy metal riff)

We all watched film "Deer Hunter"
it was aired on TV that night
I asked dad about those thingies
if that steel mill scene was right;
My dad explained the cokeworks -
blast furnace, and BOF
I figured out that rolling mill
was loud enough to make you deaf

Dad wore the silvers -
fire was his friend
Dad wore the silvers -

My dad was a full-blood steeler
he was operations engineer -
He supervised mill functions
checked that all was okay far and near
He worked hard, won the bread for home
he loved us kids and he loved Mom
He seldom wore the suit and tie
yet he could everything get done

Dad wore the silvers -
fire was his friend
Dad wore the silvers -

I grew up and my childhood days
and my youth did fade away so fast
Nineties came and the mill was axed
the jobs, they were not to last
Dad got sacked, but he got new job
in a mini-mill at nearby town
He's in charge of EAF -
he melts old cars and fridges down

Dad wore the silvers
fire's still his friend
Dad wore the silvers
fire's still his friend

Quite interesting and educational...I live in Ohio, near what once was one of the largest steel industrial areas
