The Inconvenient Son 1961

Though I could never see past what you've done
I'm a martyr's son a martyr's son
Too sentimental too high strung,
I'm on the run!

Though I could never see past what you've done
I'm a martyr's son a martyr's son
Too sentimental too high strung,
I'm on the run!

Wish I could be Sabrina's son in 1961 in 1961!
There I'd be the only one the only one
I'm the little man making a stand in Sabrina's sun
But I'm not the one!

Born from a dying Dad so sad so sad
In 1961 I was Sabrina's son Sabrina's son
No glory where the west is won where the west is won!
I'm just an unknown son an unplanned one!

I'm just a glint in the son my time will be unspun
Just a glint in the sun I'll be undone no prodigal sun
Just a another speck beneath the sun nowhere to run
I'll be your aborted son because you'd rather have none,

Never let those scandals run
Never allow clouds to dim the sun dim the sun
There's no wedding no joking pun
Just life on the run just life on the run,

Don't let them know what you did to your perfect son
You're on a roll don't let this ruin your fun
There will always be heroes who go unsung who go unsung
I'll never be able to be your only son your only son.

Never wanted never came
Just another cruel Hollywood game
More civilized than soldiers wounded and maimed
Flushed down some clinic's sewage drain.
