The Lyrics

DON’T LET MY SON BE MAD WITH ME

I can’t fight no more of his battles,
All his problems seem to change from day to day.
I’m getting old and getting ever weaker,
Sitting here and I wonder what to say.

He’s too late to stop himself from failing,
He took a chance but didn’t get it right.
Then he mistook my efforts trying to help him,
Slammed the door and went off crying in the night.

Don’t let my son be mad with me,
Although he tried so hard it’s just a shame he couldn’t see.
I tried so hard to help him with his life and set him free,
But losing everything then had my son being mad with me.

He can’t find, no, the right and proper line,
But I’m still here, he knows the way I feel.
He’ll ignore me just because he thinks that he knows best,
Though he has his faults, I’m hoping soon that he’ll get real.

Don’t let my son be mad with me,
Although he tried so hard it’s just a shame he couldn’t see
I tried so hard to help him with his life and set him free,
But losing everything then had my son being mad with me.

Don’t let my son be mad with me,
Although he tried so hard it’s just a shame he couldn’t see
I tried so hard to help him with his life and set him free,
But losing everything then had my son being mad with me.

This has the sound of a personal struggle. Hope things get resolved. Right now you may not know anything, but, possibly, in a couple of years, your son will be amazed at how much you have learned in such a short time.
