Joan Armatrading – Head Of The Table lyrics

Caught this bit of news
From unexpected quarters
You in your close-knit family
Who says what you should be after
Don't you know what you should be after
Unless you consult the head of the table
The head of the table
He's stern and strong

Caught this bit of news
From unexpected quarters
Such a close-knit family
Keeps you on the straight and narrow
You find that you're unable
To do what you want
The head of the table
He's stern and strong

So run along
Little boy run along
The head of the table would bend
If you're able to prove that you're right
And he's wrong
