Throwing darts at the wall,
With no cares at all
'Till Pops McGee
Well he gives you a call

Late night taking the car,
Down to Con Con's hookah bar
Red and blue up ahead
This is just what those pigs said

I bet your dad hates you
I bet your dad hates you
I bet your dad hates you

He hates you

They dragged me down to the clink,
Nothing to do but sit and think.
I was staring at the wall,
I better use my one call.

I phoned my big brother Chris,
And oh man! He was pissed
He said he'd come on by,
I gotta think of an alibi

Come home the next day
I walk in and say hey
You can guess what happened next
Mom comes to you and she says

I bet your dad hates you

Oh daddy I love you,
Why don't you love me back?
Where did I go wrong?
Wrong, oh oooh

I bet your dad hates you
