Woody Allen’s Op Ed piece brings up an interesting idea in the matter of Mia Farrow and her molestation charges. Woody points out that Dory Previn, ex wife of Mia’s husband Andre Previn, wrote and recorded a song called “With My Daddy in the Attic.” It was after Mia helped break up Dory’s marriage to Andre. Dory Previn was kind of a budding Carly Simon/Carole King in the late 60s. But the blow up of her marriage sent her down a path of mental breakdowns. She wrote a song about Mia around 1970 called “Beware the Young Girls.” “With My Daddy in the Attic,” about incest, was on the same album. It’s almost a blueprint for Mia Farrow’s charges against Woody regarding Dylan. Mia would have known this song as well as anything else she’d ever heard. Maybe Dylan and Ronan should look into that.

Here are the lyrics:

Ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba…With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
That is where
My being wants to bed
With the
Mattress ticking showing
And the tattered pillow slip
And the pine
Unpainted rafters overhead
With the
Door closed on my mama
And my sibling competition
And my Shirley Temple doll
That truly cries
And my essay on religion
With the pasted paper stare
Proving tangibly
I’d won the second prize
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
That is where
My dark attraction lies
With his
Madness on the nightstand
Placed beside
His loaded gun
In the terrifying nearness
Of his eyes
With no
Window spying neighbours
And no
Husbands in the future
To intrude
Upon our attic
Past the stair
Where we’ll live on
Peanut butter
Spread across assorted crackers
And he’ll play
His clarinet
When I despair
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
Passed the stair
Where we’ll live on
Peanut butter
Spread across assorted crackers
And he’ll play
His clarinet
When I despairBa ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba…

With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
Passed the stair
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
With my
Daddy in the attic
Passed the stair

  1. disgusting to think that the reason this girl is saying these things happen to her is because of a song from her step father’s ex wife. Why protect Woody and not the alleged victims???? Shame on you.

What do you think?
