A Father and a Son Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

it's not strange, no mystery
you and I are history
I put up my protective wall
it's 4 feet thick and 10 feet tall

10 feet tall and 4 feet thick
granite, concrete, steel and brick
protection for you, understand
the little boy, the inner man

boys kissed the girls
then made them cry
that's a man's job, that is why
when you cry, you're just a clone
of every woman I have known

and every Harry, Dick and Tom
gets all of this shit from his mom
who was unhappy, mom was sad
because of a wall that dad had

once its up it wont come down
and mom's a queen and dad's a clown
it's not strange, no mystery
that you and I are history

it's 4 feet thick and 10 feet tall
