"Little Boy, Be a Man"

FRANK SR (spoken):
That's the way of the world, Carl, our fathers screw us up we turn around and do the same thing to our kids. The eternal cycle

CARL (spoken):
Until somebody breaks it

FRANK SR:
Little boy, be a man
Yeah, that was pop's only plan

He never kissed me
Or sang "Baby mine"
Sure, I'd have loved a hug
But hey, I came out just fine

And if I ever would cry
He'd smack the tear from out my eye
He told me "Grow up, kid
You're no Peter Pan
Little boy, be a man"

CARL(spoken):
But, you wanna do your kid better, right?

FRANK SR (spoken):
You got any kids Carl?

CARL (spoken):
I do not

FRANK SR (spoken):
Then what the hell do you know about it? I s'pose your father was a prince

CARL (spoken):
Yep. Of darkness

CARL:
Little man, grow some balls

FRANK SR (Spoken):
Oh he did not

CARL (spoken):
He did too, every single morning

CARL:
That motto rang
Throught the halls

CARL(spoken):
True story

CARL:
On my tenth birthday
He showed me a gun
Then took me to the cornfields
And said "Okay ... run!"

His sense of humor was lame

FRANK SR(Spoken):
Like father like son

CARL (spoken):
Hey!

CARL:
Lucky for me, so was his aim!
If he had sewn some needlepoint
That hung on the walls
It woulda said "Little man
Grow some balls"

BOTH:
Ballgames that he missed
Nights he came home p*ssed
Well I don't think about
That any longer

CARL:
No one in the bleachers

FRANK SR:
Fistfights with my teachers

BOTH:
I'm living proof
What doesn't kill ya
Makes ya stronger!

CARL (spoken):
So what do you say we set the kid straight? Huh, Frank?

FRANK SR (spoken):
Hey, the kid's doing great, he's doing fine!

CARL (spoken):
You sure about that?

FRANK SR (spoken):
Oh you gotta let go, Carl. You can't hang on forever!

FRANK SR:
Little man, little me
They come with no warranty
I tried to fix it
But who would've guessed
It's hard to say but father

BOTH:
Doesn't always know best

CARL (spoken):
That is the truth

FRANK SR:
So Carl, when you have a kid

CARL:
My ex said heaven forbid

FRANK SR:
Do as I say, not as I did

BOTH:
Like dad after dad after
Dad after dad
Since the whole mess began

FRANK SR:
You do the best that you can

CARL:
Little boy, be a man
