Styx – Father O.S.A. lyrics

Written by dennis deyoung
Lead vocals by dennis deyoung

Father
You're a sad old man
Your tawdry vest is gray

Memories
Of a former man
Are all your words convey

Father
Oh can't you see
The tarnished robe you wear

A crown
For fools
The people laugh
You never seem to hear

Father
You're life's a ship
That's never been to sea

The bottle
That surrounds your life
You'll sail eternally

[keyboard solo]

Children
Please understand
A man must stand alone

And face a world
He'll never know
And never call his own

Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
Ba ba bum bum
[continue echo]

Father
Father
Father
Father
Father
Father
[continue echo]

    I FOUND FATHER OSA! He is set for canonization. I found my patron saint! He went to the same school as the band members, and, despite having quadraplegia from a car accident in 1965, he was fully ordained in Julyn 1973, the ear the album was released. This song was made for HIM! http://www.fatherbillatkinson.com/
