well my father was a fisherman in love with robert service
and my mother was a cheerleader in esko, minesotta
and my uncle introduced them and they really hit it off
and they thought they were in love
they decided to get married,
they had a couple kids, one of them was me
and my sister jenny

well my father was thought to be the life of every party
and my mother's other women friends they looked at her with envy
but what they didn't know lurked within the lamp shade
was a bitter man, was a selfish man
with a hollow chest, didn't have a heart
that was my dear old man

well maybe they were victims of what was expected of them
it was just before the dawning of the new sex revolution
and maybe they thought marriage was the proper thing to do
and in reality they probably just wanted to screw, yeah
oh the things you do when you want to screw
stupid things that you do

well sometimes i feel the product of a loveless interaction
and i feel my heart was swallowed somewhere in the last transcation
cause i saw the death of love between my parents and their families
and that really tore me up inside, i was just 6 years old
but i believe in love, protect your innocence
don't give in to being bitter
