Song Lyric Sunday : Your Father and I

This  part  of  Song Lyric  Sunday  from   Helen Espinosa

here is  the Pingback

Now  I love  Beautiful  South  because  they  write  about  real life. This  particular  song is  about  how  an  embittered  wife  see’s  the  conception  of  her  son  in  a totally  different  light  to , laddish  husband  who  seems  to be looking  at  things  through  rose  coloured  glasses  while  his  wife   most definitely  has  no  such  blinkers on! It  is  a great  story   and  the video  is  brilliantly  made ! This  is  my  first  entry  to  this  challenge  so  I hopen  I  have  gone  about  this  correctly!

I  give you : YOUR FATHER  AND I  , BY  BEAUTIFUL SOUTH.

It was the middle of winter
And I drove us in my car
Well, the snow started fallin’
So we stopped off at a bar

When the beer jugs started flowin’
And your mother and I took the floor
But by the last dance we were tired
So I booked a room next door

So if anyone asks you
“If you come from heaven above”
You’re from a one star motel
With a five star passionate love

It was a hot summers day
(Hey, hey)
And we drove there in our car
And your father was thirsty
So we had to find a bar

Well he wouldn’t stop drinking
And he couldn’t stand on his feet
We had to walk to a hotel
And book ourselves into a suite

So if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a one star drunken screw
In a one star motel

Yes, if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a pitch black toilet
In a highway Taco Bell

I’ll remember the birth
For the rest of my time on this land
You’re mother’s sweating buckets
And me holdin’ onto her hand

Well your father was absent
He claimed he couldn’t find the ward
Just tugging on mescal
Trying to eat the umbilical cord

So if anyone asks you
“Do you know where you’re from?”, say, “Yes”
You’re from your mother’s womb
And your father’s stinking breath

And if they ask you, how you got here?
(Hey)
Tell ’em just what it took
(Hey)
Your father’s stinking breath
(Hey)
And your mother’s stinking mood

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Won’t tell the truth

Aha, hey
Aha, aha
(Hey, hey)
Na na na na na na na na
(Hey, hey)

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
(Hey)
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I
