Never look him in the eye
He is still your father
Your quietness won't kill
Fear if you need to
Let tears your eyes fill
When he beats harder
If mum does and he does not buy
Let him know not this too.

I regret the day
Stood I against him
For a right I was sure
Mum was so grieved
Oh! To prevent a curse she did pray
I sang many a hymn
A team to beg to cure
For the how I behaved

Learnt now, my lesson
My father is my father
And in person
I know I'll be a better father.
