Do We Become Our Parents?

GIF

Recently @ben20 brought up Stromae again, so I wanted to share more of his work.

His break-out hit, Papaoutai brings up an interesting of: Do we eventually become like our parents, good or bad?

I personally don't have an answer for that and I think its different for everyone, but I'd love to share the lyrics and video with you and hear what you have to say!

The song begins with a son wishing his father were present in his life, but because of work or a number of other things, he's absent:

Tell me where he came from

Then I'll know where to go

Mama always says when we look really hard

We'll find what we've lost

She says he is never very far away

He often heads off to work

Mama says working is much

Better than being in bad company

Not true?

Where are you Papa?

Tell me, where are you Papa?

Without you having to tell him,

He knows what's hurting you.

Hey damn Papa,

Tell me where you're hiding!

I must have counted at least

A thousand times, to ten

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you, where are you, Papa, where are you?

But then, do you become like your parents?

The song takes a turn and reflects on what the sons or daughters become:

Even, whether we believe it or not

There'll be a day we'll believe it no more

One day or another, we'll all be the Papa

And from one day to another, we'll also have vanished.

Will we be hated?

Will we be loved?

Forefathers or geniuses

Tell us...who gives birth

To irresponsible men?!

Come on, tell us who does?

Everyone knows

How babies are made

But no one knows

How fathers are made

Mister Know-it-All,

It's in our blood, that's it.

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you? Papa, where are you?

Where are you, where are you, Papa, where are you?

So do you think that it's possible for you to grow into your parents without you realizing?
