lyrics

I am so disappointed that I can barely function
I don't show off family photographs anymore
My wife is good for nothin'
Oh sure, she cleans and does the washing
And she knows I like my dinner at 1700 hours sharp
But the one thing I wanted in this life
Was the next step in the bloodline
Can't that girl do anything right?

I'll slap you right across the face
For doing exactly what I've said
I'll lock away my daughter
'Cause I wanted a son instead

You can be the perfect student
I don't care what you're doin'
All my patience and prudence is going to waste
You can go off and worship druids
My family tree is left in ruins
What should I tell my firneds in the green berets?

I'll slap you right across the face
For doing exactly what I've said
I'll lock away my daughter
'Cause I wanted a son instead
You're just a military brat
And I can't be a doting dad
I'll lock away my daughter
'Cause I wanted a son instead

I don't care about a training bra
I'll leave all that to your mother
No kid of mine is gonna get off easy

I'll slap you right across the face
For doing exactly what I've said
I'll lock away my daughter
'Cause I wanted a son instead
You're just a military brat
And I can't be a doting dad
I'll lock away my daughter
'Cause I wanted a son instead
'Cause I wanted a son instead
'Cause I wanted a son instead
