The Sins of a Family Songtext
von Barry McGuire

The Sins of a Family Songtext

She had a bad childhood when she was very young
So don't judge her too badly
She had a schizophrenic mother who worked in the gutter
And would have sold herself to the devil, gladly

What a sad environment
A bug ridden tenement
And when they couldn't pay the rent
It was 'cause her father was out
Getting liquored
Oh, the stone's been cast
And blood's thicker than water

And the sins of the family fall on the daughter
Yeah the sins of the family fall on the daughter


At the age of 16 she had been around more
Than any girl over 30
And the high I.Q's who condemned her
Knew she's a product of poor heredity

It's a fictitious fact when you fall on your back
You can backtrack failure with inspection, without exemption

All the sins of the family fall on the daughter
Yeah the sins of the family fall on the daughter

Oh, the devil is open to all of us
Heaven selects a precious few
And it takes some inside pull to get Gabriel
To make an angel of you

One can't live a lie then expect to die
With a soul in paradise
You know you gotta pay the price
Like you oughtta
Blood's thicker than water

And the sins of the family fall on the daughter
Yeah the sins of the family fall on the daughter
