Hey dad, nice to hear from you
After all this time.
Me? I quitted school again
Yeah, that was the 5th.
No, no, not going back this time.
No, not starting a different one.
Since I kind of went and got knocked up.
So, yeah, I still have those “eating disorders things”
This bulge here is not health, is your grandchild.
Remember how you were afraid of other religions?
I went and got knocked up by a Jew.
I also went parachuting
Touched a crocodile, swam with dolphins, slept under the stars.
Got drunk with tequila in Mexico, with wine in France
And so drunk on sangria; I fell down on the mud in Spain.
Ruined a really nice pair of white pants.
Hey dad I kissed more boys than I can remember.
I got a tattoo, everyone hated it, then I went and got another one.
I quit a safe career to study literature,
And then I went and quitted that too.
Then I quitted your city,
Your house, your car, my safety blanket, I quitted all that too.
Hey dad, I got knocked up by a Jew
We fell in love with our feet in the ocean,
We fled the country, put our hands together and called it a home.
I learned a new language dad!
One you can’t understand…
Hey dad it’s been a long time, i was busy living.
While you were locked up in your dark room
Drinking your decaf coffee with fear
Hating the neighbors barking dog.
Praying for your crazy child to come home…
And hey dad i’m very sorry
But I’m doing it again.
Dad i got a new last name.
I’m giving you back yours.
Dad, I’m doing it again.
