All profits this song makes will be donated to The National Association for Children of Alcoholics. NACOA is a registered charity founded in 1990 to address the needs of children growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism or a similar addictive problem. This includes children of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.


Verse 1:
"Where the fucks my dinner bitch?"
He shouts out from the table
She drops the plates on the floor and screams where she's so emotionally unstable.
He looks at Jimmy, eyes red like a crazed bull.
But Jimmy knows that if he cries he'll get the belt across his backside.
So Jimmy doesn't cry anymore In fact Jimmy's like a vegetable.
He's scared to even speak cuz his dad's a fucking mental tool.
"Suzanne, did you drop my fucking dinner?"
Petrified she believes one day he's actually gonna kill her.
And whenever Suzanne leaves the house she's always covered in these bruises.
And when confronted by her friends she always made up these excuses.
Past tense because Suzanne hasn't seen a friend in months.
She's been housebound beaten and fucking treated like a cunt.
An inanimate sex object manhandled daily by her soul mate.
And the fucked up thing is deep down she still believes this man is so great.
And you can go and call it what the fuck you want to call it.
But daddy's an alcoholic and he just don't know how to stop it.

Oh daddy,
you know you make me cry,
How can you love me,
I can't understand why.
Oh daddy,
If I could make you see,
If there has been a fool around,
It's got to be me.

Verse 2:
For the second time this week Jimmy gets sent home for being violent
Mrs Baker called the house phone so now dad has been enlightened
Of course Jimmy's feeling frightened dad is gonna smash him right in
Thoughts in his head like he's probably gonna have pull a shank and knife him.
There he goes, daddy's fucking drunk again
And Jimmy tries to run past him but daddy started thumping him
And those screams that Jimmy screamed you could've heard from like a mile away
And he wishes he could fly away he doesn't want to die today
Mum comes through the front door horrified by these tortured screams
And tries to fight dad off for the first time to protect her seed.
She was willing to die for Jimmy as they fought all through the kitchen
But when then one fatal blow caught her head it left her cold body twitching
And Jimmy had to testify and he's only fucking 10.
His mum is fucking dead and now his dad is off to pen.
What a sad story but wait that ain't the end.
Cuz if you see Jimmy now, he's just as bad as him.

Oh daddy,
You know you make me cry,
How can you love me,
I can't understand why.
Oh Daddy,
If I can make you see,
If there's been a fool around,
It's got to be me.
Why are you right when I'm so wrong,
I'm so weak but you're so strong,
Everything you do is just alright,
And I can't walk away from you, baby
If I tried.
