The Price Of Fame

I wonder why dad
Have to work hard all his life
He gave his youth and health
Forsake his kids
And wouldn't share bread with mum

My dad was a star
But he fell from the sky
And would not shine again
Beacause the gin and cigar
Did some miracles to his system
Alas
He paid in full the price of fame

[Hata Bildir]
