Like Father!
Like Son!
Like Father!
Like Son!

Don't come on so cocksure, boy
You can't escape your genes
No point in feeling pure, boy
Your background intervenes
Now listen good, and listen straight
You're not the master of your fate
To this, you must be reconsiled
You'll always be your father's child
At times acclaimed, at times reviled
You'll end up doing just as I have done
Like father,
Like Son!

Don't assume your vices get handed down the line
For a parent's blood suffices to codemn the child's design
I've done wrong, I can't deny
But at least I know that I
Shouldn't blame that on my stock
This may come as quite a shock
But I'm not chip off any block
I wouldn't wish those words on anyone
Like father,
Like son!

Son, you're nervous
Take my hand
All is settled all is planned
You've got the world at your command
I dont think you understand

I appriciate too well
The squalor at which you excell
It isn't very hard to tell
Evil's a distinctive smell

He's lost all sense of reason
And why? Some foreign slut!
Not only is that treason
Some doors are slamming shut
Now, just like me, he's found that flesh
Will excite, but will enmesh
Once we've rid him of the blight
Once that harlots out of sight
Well, I think he'll see the light
He wont walk back to daddy, he'll run
Like father
Like Son

(Zoser and Ministers)
Like Father, Like Son
Like Father, Like Son
Like Father,
Like Son!
