It was less father and daughter and more master and slave
All the money mom saved he would blow getting bent
Broke open her piggy bank, stole every cent
Like back in the slave day’s if a slave had gotten something, than the slave would turn that over to the master, this time the master is the father, and the slave’s are mary and her mother.
