Lyrics

ONE THING NO MAN SHOULD HAVE TO DO
(Claire Ulanoff/Will Hopkins)

First it was just little things but then you start to notice
A six-pack of beer, half a bottle of Scotch
Fifty dollars missing from the cigar box

The school tells you he?s cutting class
Your gut tells you he?s smoking grass
He don?t give a damn, barely scraping by
Seeing the world through bloodshot eyes
He says he?s fine but you know he ain?t
It?s hard as hell to see him in such pain?and that?s

One thing no man should have to do
He?s your flesh and blood, the son you love
And it tears your heart in two
You know that he needs help, you can?t do it by yourself
You realize he ain?t the kid you thought you knew
That?s one thing no man should have to do

Pretty soon you?re getting calls from the cops
You clamp down hard but it just don?t stop
Still you don?t know fear ?til that one rainy night
They haul his ass in on a DUI
He calls you up and begs you for his bail
You say ?sorry, son, you?ll have to sleep in jail?and that?s

One thing no man should have to do
He?s your flesh and blood, the son you love
And it tears your heart in two
You know that he needs help, he can?t do it by himself
But to turn your son away when he turns to you
That?s one thing no man should have to do

So you sign him in for twenty-eight days
Then it?s up to him one day at a time
It ain?t easy giving tough love
But it sure as hell beats giving up??cause that?s

One thing no man should have to do
He?s your flesh and blood, the son you love
It would tear your heart in two
You know that he needs help, he?s got to do it for himself
Before you see your boy laid out in a dark gray suit
And that?s one thing no man should have to do
