Namesake Chain

Download Song

A J-name I'll bequeath you,
And Jacobs heart, it will be instilled
Before and beneath you,
A running start on which to build

Hey kid, it's your father
I always thought that your mom and I ought to
Name you, name you Troy
Name you Troy
After cousin Harris,
Who was named after Hector and Paris
And the namesake chain
Is a complicated mess
But we hope for the best
And impart on you the loveliness and not the pain

Greg wrote in his emails
Everything was basically fine
I don't know the details
But I should have read between the lines

Hey kid, when we went to
Have you weighed, I'm afraid that we meant to
Name you, name you Troy,
Name you Troy
After cousin Harris
Who was named after Hector and Paris
And the namesake chain
Is a complicated mess
But we hope for the best
And impart on you the loveliness and not the pain

So take not this depression
Another dot in the line of succession
It's a complicated mess
The namesake chain
But we hope for the best
And we pray for the same
And we know you'll inherit the loveliness and not the pain
