River City Rebels – Daddy Was A Drunk lyrics

Growing up with daddy who was always a drunk
Now he's cleaned up
He's a righteous fuck
I got an education in poverty and the street smarts to prove it
Hanging downtown on south main with the boozers and freaks till two a.m.
Ten years old was the life for me
At least that's all i could foresee

Daddy was a drunk with no regrets
Mommy sold pot and snorted coke

Mommy was an internet junkie on welfare with no hope
Five kids, no dad, no future, no chance

[Repeat chorus]
