This Be The Verse

 They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
 They may not mean to, but they do.
 They fill you with the faults they had
 and add a bit more, just for you.

 But they were fucked up in their turn
 by fools in old-style hats and coats,
 who half the time were weak but stern
 and used the rest to lunge at throats.

 This goes from man to man by hand.
 It grows deep like it's near the sea.
 Get out as soon as you can stand
 and plan your life to be kid-free.
