I don't know too much,
Too much of my old man.
I know he walked right out the door
And we never saw him again.
Last I heard he was at the bar doing himself in. I know I got that same disease,
I guess I got that from him.
This is the story of my old man,
Just like his father before him.
I'm telling you do anything you can,
So you don't end up just like them, like them. Monday he woke up and hated life,
Drank until Wednesday and left his wife. Thursday through Saturday lost everything,
Woke up on Sunday miserable again.

I remember baseball games
And working on the car.
