lyrics

There’s a very good chance,
Should you try to alter your plans,
From the hand down family dance,
You’ll never make it alone.

No, there’s too much risk,
In a foolish swing and a miss,
So knock it off now whatever it is,
Because it’s written in stone.

The first yoke,
Make your bank at the old smoke,
Keep your track on a tight rope,
Don’t let the family down,
You’re a good kid,
You’d better do what your daddy did,
God forbid,
You venture out and go broke,
Just take the first yoke.

Down at the factory,
Theres a rooted family history,
So take whats handed to you blissfully,
And don’t you ever run-out.

If your poor heart breaks,
And you wonder if you’ve made a mistake,
Come on Johnny now for goodness sake,
That’s not what life is about.

The first yoke,
Make your bank at the old smoke,
Keep your track on a tight rope,
Don’t let the family down,
You’re a good kid,
You’d better do what your daddy did,
God forbid,
You venture out and go broke,
Just take the first yoke.

How you’ll be fixed in your hate,
And how the cruel world will never relate,
To the sad and unfortunate fate,
Of a boy with no spine.

But hey you get to be friends with the cops,
So you can drink and drive and never get stopped,
Plus, theres always good parking spots,
And hardly ever a line.

The first yoke,
Make your bank at the old smoke,
Keep your track on a tight rope,
Don’t let the family down,
You’re a good kid,
You’d better do what your daddy did,
God forbid,
You venture out and go broke,
Just take the first yoke.
