​It Ain't For You

This song is by The Badlees and appears on the EP It Ain't For You (1990).

(Alexander)

Hush now baby, can't you see
This cross I bear, it ain't for me
I do my job, it's all I have
To give you things I never had

I had my chance in '63
To start my own small company
That's over now, I know it's true
For me babe, it ain't for you

Listen to the things I say
Don't run and hide, don't turn away
Ain't no one knows what you should do
Boy, it's too late for me
It ain't for you

Son I see you're going far
Out of college, brand new car
Your business is doing well
Your mom and I, we're proud as hell

But remember everything I said
He who hesitates is dead
And a simple man with honest means
Is better than a thousand thieves

Listen to the things I say
Don't run and hide, don't turn away
Ain't no one knows what you should do
Boy, it's too late for me
It ain't for you

Hello dad, I know it's late
There's something that just couldn't wait
I'm working seven days a week
I need some time for family

There's too much work for just one man
So now I'm looking to expand
I did the things you said to do
And now 'm coming back for you

Listen to the things I say
Don't run and hide, don't turn away
Ain't no one knows what you should do
Boy, it's too late for me
It ain't for you
