your father and i lyrics – beautiful south

it was the middle of winter
and i drove us in my car
well, the snow started fallin’
so we stopped off at a bar

when the beer jugs started flowin’
and your mother and i took the floor
but by the last dance we were tired
so i booked a room next door

so if anyone asks you
“if you come from heaven above”
you’re from a one star motel
with a five star p*ssionate love

it was a hot summers day
(hey, hey)
and we drove there in our car
and your father was thirsty
so we had to find a bar

well he wouldn’t stop drinking
and he couldn’t stand on his feet
we had to walk to a hotel
and book ourselves into a suite

so if the teacher asks you
“are you from heaven or are you from h*ll?”
you’re from a one star drunken screw
in a one star motel

yes, if the teacher asks you
“are you from heaven or are you from h*ll?”
you’re from a pitch black toilet
in a highway taco bell

i’ll remember the birth
for the rest of my time on this land
you’re mother’s sweating buckets
and me holdin’ onto her hand

well your father was absent
he claimed he couldn’t find the ward
just tugging on mescal
trying to eat the umbilical cord

so if anyone asks you
“do you know where you’re from?”, say, “yes”
you’re from your mother’s womb
and your father’s stinking breath

and if they ask you, how you got here?
(hey)
tell ’em just what it took
(hey)
your father’s stinking breath
(hey)
and your mother’s stinking mood

your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i won’t tell the truth
your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i won’t tell the truth
your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i won’t tell the truth
won’t tell the truth

aha, hey
aha, aha
(hey, hey)
na na na na na na na na
(hey, hey)

your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i won’t tell the truth
your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
(hey)
your father and i won’t tell the truth
your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i won’t tell the truth
your father and i won’t tell the whole truth
your father and i
