The paint’s still wet
And my momma’s pretty cheeks are too
I bring her in close
And ask her why she’s feelin’ blue
She says, “I think I lost our daughter
Probably left her at the zoo”
I said, “I didn’t know we had one”
She says, “Now you do”
I’ve been up and down town
Lookin’ for a picture frame
With my baby in tow
Wearin’ a downright heavy look of shame
I said, “What’d I do now?”
As I look for someone else to blame
She says, “You know what you’ve done
I am only here to complain”
I’m a-bangin’ that wall
Lookin’ for a stud to nail on
Them silicon-bandits
Are lookin’ for a jack to wail on
Captain Arab
He’s a-lookin’ to sail on
And that girl next door
Tells me that I can’t stay long
