Lyrics (fan transcription):
some people's stories, they go nowhere at all
some people's songs are catchy but they don't touch the soul
but yours are like a feeding tube right through my ears
they fatten up my dreams and run through my bloodstreams

uncle bobby, uncle bobby
uncle bobby, I love you so
uncle bobby, I love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, you'll never know

I love you not like a husband to have and to hold
I love you not like a child to do as they're told
I love you not like a sculpture love her mold
I love you not like a masterpiece bought and sold

uncle bobby, I love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, I love you so
uncle bobby, I love you, love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, you'll never know

I know you're just a man of flesh
and a bit of sand and blood and cash
but I'm so glad you've been born
unto us, unto us

you leave me torn and lovelorn
you leave me crying, ready to mourn
you leave me waiting for that eternal storm
you leave me happy and reborn
you leave trying to break down doors
and waiting for more, waiting for more

uncle bobby, I love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, you'll never know
uncle bobby, I love you, love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, I love you so
uncle bobby, uncle bobby, I love you
uncle bobby, I love you so

not like a husband to have and to hold
not like a disciple who do what they're told
not like a masterpiece that's been bought and sold
not like the frontiers when love is gold
not like the icicle love the winter cold

uncle bobby, I love you, uncle
uncle bobby, I love you so
uncle bobby, I love you, love you, love you, uncle
uncle bobby, you'll never know
uncle bobby, uncle bobby, I love you
uncle bobby, I love you so
uncle bobby...you'll never know
