Father's Son

lyrics

i did 30 years hard labor
slaving in a corporate mine
punching in and punching out
selling every minute of my time

so i took my troubles home
between the notches of my spine
and in the end it cost me
all three children and my wife

oh but it didn't take you long to figure out
your time is not something you're gonna sell
too many loves inside your heart to waste it all on one
thank god you're not your father's son

now i guess you'd call me happy
shacking up with wifey number two
but my kids call me a stranger
what a way to waste a youth
