A Song

there couldn’t be a sadder day
than the one that i am in today;
the life that i once knew is gone;
and all that i have left is this song.

i couldn’t believe my eyes
when i saw you with another guy;
i thought i was mistaken
but it seems your heart was taken
and i thought, i’d just stand there — and die;

but the rage inside of me
broke out, flew up and soared free;
without knowing anything
i stormed toward him
and his balls met my knee.

the scream he let out —
more a whimper than a shout —
made me feel like laughing.
but as his eyes met mine a-staring,
i suddenly had my doubts.

i’d seen this man before,
standing at your door
asking you to come out for dinner;
he is your dad! and i am a goner!
blasted away into folklore.

there couldn’t be a sadder day
than the one that i am in today;
the life that i once knew is gone;
and all that i have left is this song.
