Sitting on the swing
Trying to relate to just anything
Wonder where it's at
Conversations of where it's at

Ohh yeah
Ohh yeah
People come and stare
Wondering who's really there
He smiles and says,
"I could've been one of them"

Oh Eddie, Eddie

He was something different
Oh well he never hurt no one
And I wonder if his father said
"Oh god, he's not my son"
And "Oh God, he's not my son"

Oh Eddie

He was all alone
Walked the streets
No place to call home
Fingers to his head
No one put him to his death

Ohh
Oh Eddie, Eddie

He was something different
But he never hurt no one
And I wonder if his father said
"Oh God, he's not my son"
And "Oh God, he's not my son"

Yeah, tell me something about him
'Cause music's his only prayer

He was something different
But he never hurt no one
And I wonder if his father said
"Oh God, he's not my son"

Oh now Eddie
Oh Eddie - yeah
Oh Eddie
Oh now Eddie

No Eddie you're not my son
No Eddie you're not my son
No Eddie you're not my son
No Eddie you're not my son

Eddie you're not my son...

    General Commentthis is such a sad song! i think it's just about a kid who is unloved by everyone just because of who he is, & he really has nowhere to go

    General CommentI'm not sure, but this seems a reference to Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam, since this band was really inspired in Pearl Jam. Or may not. Dont know.

    General Commentthis is actually about a young girl trapped in a boy's body. he isn't like the other boys and his dad knows it and wants nothing to do with it.

    when Eddie grows up he will change his name to a girl's name, start a course of hormone therapy, grow some breasts and eventually get a vagina installed.

    his dad is a dick.
