Bare: A Pop Opera Soundtrack Lyrics
Love, Dad Lyrics
Wow! Congratulations Romeo, the lead in the play
Dad will be excited...
Yeah, I'm looking forward to that conversation
Conversation? I'm don't think I've ever had one of those with Dad
Approach the bench Miss McConnell!
_____ our father will hear your case now (?)
Our father, the honorable judge
Presiding over our every decision
And Mom can't take our calls
She's busy planning balls
Exhausting her kindness on strangers
Could we have been raised by two warmer people?
That birthday package showed up two weeks late, not bad
Not as bad as last year certainly
Oh, the combined Christmas/Birthday/Easter package
No, 8! Remember when Dad thought that...
...that Mom would...
They rented out the zoo
And our nanny walked us through
And both of our parents were no-shows
Oh, Nadia, I am so sorry, this day just sneaks up on me every year
Kiddo, you know I rely on your mother to remind me of these things
Remember when he said he'd make it up to me?
Two days later I struck out, we lost the game
And he made me walk home alone from the little league park
Here, honey, buy some therapy
Dad's birthday check and...surprise, a note!
(reading note) "Dear Jason:
Please find enclosed this very thick package that came for you yesterday
I talked with Father Flynn, and he told me you were in
But call anyway when you open it...Notre Dame!
But we always knew that you'd keep the McConnell flame burning
What did Dad get you?
You mean what did Dad's secretary get me...?
I think they're slimming...what do you think?
