BOY'S BUNK (Continued)

John Luke:
Papa says it's the pills she takes
He says it's her Change Of Life, when
Your hips fall down around your knees
And they take out your guts with a siphon
We're screaming, "Stop it Daddy shut up no no
"We don't wanna hear!"
Mom hollers, "Can't you shut those kids up it there
"Give'em some more beer!"
Papa spits into the corner he says,
"All right shut up now you heard her
"don't you know your mother's crazy
"Look out or there's gonna be another axe murder!"
Papa was cryin: woo-hoo-hoo
Then the sirens, cops a-comin: woo-oo-oo-oo
The cops said "Where is he
"Who slew a mother of three
"We'll knock his balls back up his crack"
Oh no! Anything but that again!

John Luke & Wayne: If you're looking for the one that did it was me
I can't believe that overnight I became a man
This strange and dangerous man and
It's all me
