lyrics

Charlie was Ethel's Baby, he was kinda chubby, baby Charlie
Charlie was a kid in the'20s, gave it up in the '30s, but never went to war

I wear this high high collar not to look down on you, but to keep my head on straight
and when I turn and face the high high altar, i'm not turning my back on you, i'm thinking of us all

I know you hate me cos you think I'm just a man who stole your mother from you, Charlie

Charlie, there's a dog in outer-space and I see tear track on your young wife's face
She lost a brother to a stray bombshell, so you can't console her? where's your Father Charlie?

I know you hate it, but I'm more than the man who's living with your mother, Charlie

something grabs ahold of your belly, it's grip is familiar, but the hand is alien
i know you can never call me father. but you know you got one, you a true son.

I know you hate me cos you think I'm just a man who stole your mother from you, Charlie
I know you hate it, but I'm more than the man who's sleeping with your mother, Charlie

Charlie…Charlie…Charlie...
