Lonnie Brooks – Like Father, Like Son lyrics

Let me tell you about this boy of mine
When my son was only 9 years old
He would not write and save his soul
Staying out late cutting the school

Chasing girls and acting the rule
I tell you son you better try and write
If you've been staying out every night

He said
Daddy I'm just doing what you've done
And I admit every minute like father like son

When he finally touches me
The baddest kid that I ever see
Cruising the street sneaking in the bar
Got drunk one night and he wrecked my car
I tell you son you better cool out soon
If you ever want to reach the age of 21

He said
Daddy I'm just doing what you've done
And I admit every minute like father like son

Play you're guitar for me daddy
Show me what you can do son

I tell you stop to try to raise a child
When you can't say, you like I did
Grand ma told me you was wild
Ever since you was a baby child

How can I tell him to learn and trade
When I was crazy at his age
Daddy you can't talk him bad
Cause everything I learned I learned from my dad
Daddy I'm just doing what you've done
Like father like son

Now my boy is almost grown
Out of the house and he's on his own
Playing the blues like his old man
And he's damn good as I am
It's seems like the boy gonna take the fire

I keep believe he's a son of mine
Daddy I'm just doing what you've done
And I admit every minute like father like son

Come on dad
Are you playing like I told ya, son?
Play me one more

What can you say about that?
Can you top that? Give me the soul, son
Come on dad show me one more
Check out this, you near like this
