  1. The Stein

I take the Stein to my sets.

Lyrics

The Stein
My dad has a beer stein that he bought in France.
When lifted it plays this song sweetly.
He bought it while younger and life was just chance
It plays...
(Chorus)
I thought it was empty but I was just a lad.
I'd never taken one step as my dad.
When I think about it just makes me mad.
Now that my kids call me dad.
It set on the mantle way out of our reach.
It played...
He'd wind it up and it would play us to sleep.
It played...
(Chorus)
I'd never seen one drop in that glass
But it was overfl owing with memories and past.
When I think about it just makes me sad.
Now that my kids call me dad.
Well last year at Christmas that stein became mine.
When lifted it plays only silence.
It's broken, it's broken
From time after time
It played...
(Chorus)
I thought it was empty but I was just a lad.
I'd never taken one step as my dad.
When I think about it just makes me glad.
Now that my kids call me dad.
Now that my kids call me dad.
Now that my kids call me dad.
