My papa said his papa drank his mama's bitter tears
As he nestled at her breast
And she grieved her husband's passing
And cried out all his unlived years
All of his unlived years
Cried out all his unlived years

He looked up to his mama for some answers
He searched for hope in her face
He quickly learnt that life it was lonely
And that love was a cruel mistake
It was a cruel mistake
That love was a cruel mistake

That man he raised my papa really hard
His hand was always cold
'Cause my papa's papa's mama's bitter tears
Were still swimming in his soul

Those bitter tears are waiting
They're waiting to be laid to rest
But my papa he will take them
He's gonna take them to his final breath
He gonna take them to his final breath
Right to his final breath
He gonna cry them at his final breath
