Andrew Gold's, "Lonely Boy"
The Lyrics:
His mother and father said what a lovely boy
We'll teach him what we learned, ah yes, just what we learned
We'll dress him warmly and we'll send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight to be nobody's fool.

Well, his sister grew up and she married a man
She gave him a son, ah yes a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly, they sent him to school
It taught him how to fight to be nobody's fool.
A story (maybe autobiographical) about how the boy's parents never lived up to the promises after his sister was born. And later, his sister and brother-in-law do exactly like the boy's parents promised before with their own son. As least the tune was lively.
