Daddys has been in jail most of my life/he knocked my mother up
the day he committed a big crime/went down for arm robbery for 22 years/
was an accessory for murder even though he didn’t do a thing
whoo hooo whoo hoo the poor runt/

Maybe he could have told his brother/to pull his head in/Instead when he killed the police officer /he simply stood and let him
whoo hooo whoo hoo the poor cunt/

We visited him a lot /when I was really young
in maximum security/He said he loved my Mum /she hardly even knew him
It guess lonely inside prison/knowing she was out there built some great romanticism
whoo hooo whoo hoo the poor cunt

Mum didn’t seem to mind /as she thought he was quite charming/This went of for quite a while /until I was half past nine/We’d see him every weekend/Fuck we had a pretty darn good time/Then sadly like a twist of fake everything changed

My mum got breast cancer and end up dying/I stood there all alone in a home the day that I turned ten /Heart broken missing Mum with no chance of getting near to him
It was the first time I’d know depression/now my biggest personal demon
whoo hooo whoo hoo the poor cunt

Spent 5 years stuck in foster family/Until I ran away/when I put a single foot wrong the belt would be slapped right into me/Found myself living on the streets of Sydney and Kings Cross/Spent a while in an allay in Surry hills and some nights in darlinghurt
whoo hooo whoo hoo the poor cunt

One day I sat there so lost/I thought of ending it/I was sitting on a bench near goulburn lockup and hunt street/I was almost 21 years of age I felt like I was in my 50s
when I saw this man walking towards me and I knew that it certainly was him

I asked him siir are you my father/He relied by saying my name/tears rolled down both of our faces/we looked very much the same/he hugged me like a fathera feeling I’d rarely known before/it changed my life and also his /we knew we’d won a war.
