I drank in my youth and had more than my share
I'd ask for forgiveness but I really don't care
Don't ask you to see me but for what I am
Was a dad for a while now just a lonely old man
I've wandered, I've tasted
I've squandered all that should be mine
What bounty I've wasted
I swapped my story for a line
I never let you lie
Except when you called me daddy
And if I seem insincere
Well, good then you finally get me
I've wandered, I've tasted
I've squandered all that should be mine
What bounty I've wasted
I never was born to see the line
It's hard to stay, it's hard to fight
But it was easy to go
And I could care but what the hell
I had my own seeds to sow
And they were young they'll let it go
They'll learn to swallow the pain
I shouldn't have to be involved
I shouldn't have to explain
Well, you were wrong, I can't forget
I never could understand
And now with children of my own
It's as clear as my hand
Oh, you're a despicable man
Oh, a despicable man
You've wandered, you've tasted
You've squandered all that should be mine
What bounty you've wasted
You never was one to see the line
You've wandered, you've tasted
You've squandered all that should be mine
What bounty you've wasted
You swapped my story for the line
I hope that you've enjoyed the line
