Anvil — Deadbeat Dad lyrics

A failed marriage left the mother to care
Love is gone but the kid s are still there
A broken home has become commonplace
The look of anguish on the child s face
Gone and lost

Being there just for conception
Made a promise that was all a deception
Gone and lost

[Chorus 1:]
Deadbeat dad, support he won t pay
Deadbeat dad always staying away
Deadbeat dad in disgrace and despair
Deadbeat dad, to the kids it s not fair
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/anvil-deadbeat-dad-lyrics.html ]
Biology can only go so far
When your gone it leaves a scar
Children learn to live without
Being there is what it s all about
Gone and lost
Pay the cost

[Chorus 2:]
Deadbeat dad lost in a haze
Deadbeat dad set in his ways
Deadbeat dad, a loser at heart
Deadbeat dad won t do his part

Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad

[Chorus 1]
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
Deadbeat dad
