about

I try to love all of my music equally -- but if songs were children this is the one I'd buy ice cream and ponies for and make the other kids watch, and whenever they'd say "daddy, how come we don't get ice cream and ponies, too?" I'd say "WELL MAYBE I'D BUY YOU NICE THINGS IF YOU WERE MORE LIKE YOUR BROTHER"

I wouldn't be a very good parent

lyrics

now I hate to be a jerk
and this is probably going to hurt
but our situation merits a word
when you come in here
crying and whining and moaning
about the mess that you're in that you richly deserve
it's like something inside you
that burns and drives you
to live like a king born destined to rule
so I hate to be cruel
and just sit here and laugh
but you were the one saying we were the fools

HEY
OH NO
you did this to yourself

well you rambled and gambled
and burned all your money
on women and imported wine
spent every penny that you ever owned
then you tried to start burning through mine
lived on the edge, with one foot in the grave
and made peace with God every day
said, "every penny you save is a penny you waste"
and money's just paper, so you threw it away

we're living like we've got all the time in the world
