Life's been getting harder every day
I don't know what to do or what to say
Nothing seems quite right, I think I lost my fight
Do you think I'll live to see another day?
You know I hate the job that I've been working at
But life just seems to go like that
Out here on my own, well, I feel so alone
Father, won't you let me come home?
Could you help me, father, could you help me out?
Could you show me what to do or what to say?
If you can't I understand, cos I know you're just a man
You're my father, so that's OK
I still don't know what I want to be
The world around me seems so crazy
Criminals in power, the streets no longer safe
What kind of man would I want to be?
There's a girl I love and you know I want to marry
She's everything I hoped she would be
So poppa if you would, give some tips to help me out
So I'll know how to raise a family
