HEY!

Boy says father will you make me a stronger man?
Father says he'll try
Hand goes slack across his face and all he heard
Boy be a man, and don't you cry

I, I ain't saying it was right
But it was right on time
I, I ain't saying it was right
But he was always right by my side

Boy says mother will you wash my sins away?
Mother says she'll try
Sometimes it seems like things ain't never change
Boy understand, don't wast your time

I, I ain't saying it was right
But it was right on time
I, I ain't saying it was right
But she was always right by my side

I, I ain't saying it was right
But it was right on time
I, I ain't saying it was right
But he was always right by my side
Right by my side
Right by my side
Right by my side
Right by my side
Right by my side

    General Commenti think the song is about the guys parents neglected him,the dad beat him and the mother didnt take any intrest in him,but despite all that,he isnt saying its right but it was right on time,plus he says he and she were right by his side,hes saying he doesnt blame them for the pain they caused him.
