lyrics

Three generations and there all in a van
and they got there frustrations like the older man
who’s worked his whole life his flag unfurled
but he never got to see the world
and the woman he loved wanted by his side
was taken away with the tide… and he has regrets

Three generations and there all in a van
and they got there frustrations like the middle aged man
who hides the sorrow of his divorce
and though he still loves her fate must decide the course
so he works much harder does not go home
Just goes to town and drinks alone… his heart is wrecked but he won’t admit it

Three generations and there all in a van
and they got there frustrations like the younger man
who knows little of pain
he fell down once but got up again
he makes the coffee and brings the tea
but his dream is to be like one of these… older men with the respect that they command

The older man takes the young one aside
and says “boy if you don’t want regrets do something with your life,
try to reach the heavens you can touch the stars,
you could go to America and drive big cars,
make a difference stake your claim
all you need boy is to be bold… and to love without fear of pain

Three generations and there all in a van
and they got there frustrations like every man…
