My girlfriend
Has a kid from a previous marriage
She's sweatin'

I pick him and her up
Then drop him off at the bus stop
Then we intercept him
Once he's finished with his learning
And she's complaining in the car
The teachers aren't sensitive
But he's not special
You just indulge him
And call it a condition

My kid's not fit!
My kid's not fit for your curriculum!

Regardless if
Everything's as you'd hoped it'd be
You're learning

My girlfriend differs in
Her tactic of raising kids
She shelters him
(Just wants what's best for him)
You're bending over backwards
You're not doing him any favors
If you indulge him now
He'll be one of those kids
The whole world's out to get

(Sax solo mother effers)


I know I'm not your dad but
Stiffen that upper lip, kid
Pick up that mitt and catch

Regardless if
Everything's as you'd hoped it'd be
You're learning
