​Father's Name Was Dad

This song is by Fire and appears on the compilation Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts from the British Empire and Beyond, 1964-1969 (2001).

For a kid of four you don't expect
A supernatural intellect
Me just like the other kids
Lived a world of building bricks

My father's name was Dad
My mother's name was Mum
How can I take the blame
For anything I've done

So now at my present age
Which people call the awkward stage
Why should everything be made
To look like insane escapades

My father's name was Dad
My mother's name was Mum
How can I take the blame
For anything I've done

See the hollows of my eyes
Make my career of empty skies
I'll laugh at it all

So now at my present age
Which people call the awkward stage
Why should everything be made
To look like insane escapades

My father's name was Dad
My mother's name was Mum
How can I take the blame
For anything I've done
