Oh father, what happened to you
Did you have more urgent affairs to attend to?
Did business press, or did you just get bored
Thrown half your life through a one way door?
Sometimes it scares me, look in the mirror
And see myself growing up looking like you
No I don't have much time to waste getting worried
I've got more urgent affairs of my own to attend to

Father, what happened to you
Haven't seen you in a whole decade
Did you ever learn, did you ever grow up
Are you still as weak, do I make you feel afraid?
Do you tell your friends there's a son somewhere?
Did you ever wonder how he looks?
Did anyone ever give you my number?
Say here's two pence cause my phone's off the hook
