Used to be a sweet boy Holding so tightly To Daddy's hand But that was all In some distant land Blazer and tie And a big bright healthy smile Used to make all Of our trials worthwhile

Used to be a sweet boy And I'm not to blame But something went wrong Something went wrong And I know I'm not to blame Something went wrong Can't be to blame Ah
