No Regrets

father won’t take them pills
no doctor is gonna make him ill
and mother, she just stands still
puts both hands upon her hips, fresh lines of worry
and father he don’t ever say he’s sorry
he never will
he never will

my brother had no mind for school
weren’t no teacher gonna make his rules
found himself a lover, man she loves her jewels
she’d put both hands upon the men who would supply her
my brother’s perfect angel was on fire
he never knew
he never will

so please baby, don’t hedge your bets
cuz just maybe you ain’t seen it all yet
just how crazy this family gets
so put both hands upon the wheel and push the pedal
cuz the farther we get now the less they’ll meddle
won’t be no regrets
won’t be no regrets
no regrets
no regretsfather won’t take them pills
no doctor is gonna make him ill
and mother, she just stands still
puts both hands upon her hips, fresh lines of worry
and father he don’t ever say he’s sorry
he never will
he never will

my brother had no mind for school

so please baby, don’t hedge your bets
cuz just maybe you ain’t seen it all yet
just how crazy this family gets
so put both hands upon the wheel and push the pedal
cuz the farther we get now the less they’ll meddle
won’t be no regrets
won’t be no regrets
no regrets
no regrets
