Fifth Son

I wasn't number one
or even number two
'cause when you're the fifth son
nobody cares about you

mom and dad
never had much
worked for what they got
but after me they just gave up

Life was hard
I had to raise myself
lost in this world
with no one else

I never went to school
barely got to eat
they never kept track
and i had to sleep on the street

I was called a bum
a no good slob
but I couldn't help who i was
so I blamed God

I grew up quick
and tried to leave
but no matter where I went
no one wanted me

I tried to work
but it never worked out
seemed i was just someone
no one will ever care about

I wasn't number one
or even number two
'cause when you're the fifth son
no one cares about you
