"Drunk Daddy" as written by and Steve Perry....
Mamma married a big asshole, whiskey bottles on the floor
He just keeps on watchin' TV, stepchild tired of being poor
Kitchen smells like rotten garbage
I can't chew my food my face is sore
Momma didn't come home last evening
Neighbors say that she's a whore
Some folks never want for nuthin'
I'm, a worn out hand me down
Stupid rich kid gets me angry
Lord I'm gonna cut him down
Now I'm grown up same old story
At 21 I fell in love
She left me just like the others
Jesus why'd you curse my love?
Drunk daddy broke my fingers
Drunk daddy done kicked my head
Drunk daddy smashed my sister
Turned my whole world red (blood red)
I haul the burden for the high and mighty
But I'm the top hat Devil's son
I got the luck of the drunk, try an' nail me
I'm the bullseye - aim you gun
Yesterday they shook your hand boy
Now they're gonna stab your back
I can hear their sickening laugher
Sneakin' like a Siamese cat
Back stage in the club bathroom
A graven image on the wall
I'm about to get my vengeance
Lights go down in the hall
You gotta move fast to beat the devil
You arm is too short to box with God
Big shadow in the doorway
He's not going to spare the rod (so get out)
Drunk daddy broke my fingers
Drunk daddy done kicked my head
Drunk daddy smashed my sister
Turned my whole world red (blood red)

    General CommentAnother Daddies song, in which they pair a dark message with a sound that doesn't suit them, but in usual Daddies fashion, the song is great.

    Clearly about child abuse, at the hands of a deadbeat, alcoholic stepfather, while the mother stands by, inactively.
