  This Be The Verse

  They fuck you up, your mom and dad
  They may not mean to, but they do
  They fill you with the faults they had
  and add some extra, just for you

  But they were fucked up in their turn
  by fools in old-style hats and coats
  who half the time were soppy stern
  and half at one another's throats

  man hands on misery to man
  it deepens like a coastal shelf
  get out as early as you can
  and don't have any kids yourself.
