My way or No Way


-
Adjust your position so I can see your thoughts on what has gone
Sit me down and explain just why and what I have done wrong

I only know I love you but I can see you don't agree 
My father was an inno-cent and helpful to a tee

He worked and toiled abroad for us that gave a tidy sum
And off you went and took me too together with the mon

A beautiful house your dream come true and yet he lived abroad
You barred him from the children too come sickle or come sword

He said he'd sue for character defamed but I protected you
You don't see this and I suppose you may not ever do

And now he's passed away you say 'I'm sorry for what you go through'
No mention of a sympathy but yet your parent's do.

And now you're saying as to form 'It's my way or it's none'
I have not seen my children now for one year and more to come
