You're My Son

This song is by Kenny Rogered and appears on the album 439 Golden Greats (1981) by The HeeBeeGeeBees.

There are times when a boy becomes a man
And things you couldn't tell him you suddenly can
And when Billy grew up I thought it was the time
That I called him and laid things on the line
And I said Billy you're almost turned sixteen
And I thought I ought to tell you about your mama and me
I have to let you know we married thirteen years ago
That means technically speakin'...
You're a bastard

You're a bastard, you're a bastard
But you're still my son
You're a bastard, you're a bastard
But what's done is done

And Billy - he's a big boy - stood by my side
And as he looked down at me a tear came to his eye
(And there was two of them)
He said Dad what you tell me comes as no surprise
Ma told me all about you before she died
She said you'd promised you'd always be true
Never cheat on a blind girl, that's what you'd never do
But you slept with her mother, her sister and her... brother
In a word she said you...
Were a bastard

You're a bastard, you're a bastard
'N you did my mama wrong which is worse
You're a bastard, you're a bastard
And I replied "But you were a bastard first"

All together now
(He's a bastard, he's a bastard) I'm a bastard
(He's a selfish old shite) That's me
(He's a bastard, he's a bastard)
And you know that bastard was right
And you know that bastard...
Was right
