Where's Dad

Oh Antonio
Who's going to pay the bills
The city's so far
Who's going to fix a broken car

    Mama don't cry
    I'm strong
    I'll get us along

Now he's 31
Carrying a gun

    I'm here
    Filled with anger and fear

How does a child learn to be a man
Without a plan
Oh men in blue
Be still
Help the children feel

    Broken glass is everywhere
    Trash is blowing in the air
    It should be illegal
    Not to care
