Madhouse Nuts

February 3, 2014

crazy love

Me and my man
We had a date
Would you believe
That he was late, late, late?
—Next day late

And when I finally
Saw that punk
Would you believe
That he was drunk, drunk, drunk?
—Smelly drunk

That loser is
My baby’s dad
Would you believe
That I am mad, mad, mad?
–Murder mad

This man is
More than I can take
Woul you believe
That he’s a snake, snake, snake?
–Walking snake

But I just love
The way he struts
Would you believe
That I am nuts, nuts, nuts?
–Madhouse nuts

Sorry: A Duet of Heartache

June 28, 2012

Daddy said my tender heart
Leads me to pursue
Birds with broken wings
And stray dogs just like you

I’m sorry bout the mixup
I’m sorry I’m a fool
Didn’t mean to spend your birthday
Takin’ shots and shootin’ pool

I’m sorry that you took my car
And wrapped it round a tree
I’m sorry that I hocked my house
And gave my guarantee

I’m sorry I jumped bail
I’m sorry that I ran
I’m sorry that the PeeDee
Found me in my van

Always been I susceptible
To rascals just like you
All it ever got me was
A pocket full of blues

I’m a live tornado
Spewin’ mess and misery
Till I beat the bottle
It’s all I’m gonna be
