(This song is a tribute to "I Watched the Film 'The Song Remains the Same' and "I Love My Dad" by Mark Kozelek.)


I watched the film 'The Count of Monte Cristo'
With my grandparents when I was small
And years later I wanted to repeat that cherished experience
I arranged it all it sort of worked out but of course
It was't perfect

When Richard Chamberlain howled deeply in that insane dungeon
And when he stood at the small barred window to catch the sun
That was the moment my grampa
Couldn't watch no more
But even had he stayed I wouldn't get what I wanted

My Dad has a good heart I know he loves my mom they never parted
Though he's never read anything (He worked as a policeman one day he blew off his pinkie, it didn't hurt he says)
But now the family's provided for
Dad has started a low voltage thing he took some loans
And though at first he had great worries now we're quite well-off

We have three cars! I got my mom's car
Last week I had to change my address to get a parking place in Prague
And I know my Dad loves me
Even though we've no common ground
I know he's doing what he can
It's good what we've got
