FLOWERS

I got two more mouths than I need...
And a car that stalls and a roof that leaks
And a job that keeps me staring at the clock

When I come home the house's a mess,
Two full grown boys who ain't no kind of help,
And ugliest goddamn garden on the block.

But I planted flowers down on my hands and knees,
Trimmed them and watered every day,
Problem with flowers, they do just as they please,
And when winter comes you can never make them stay.

I sold the comb he bought for me,
In that nice Jap box from overseas,
Now I hold it back with a piece of thread,

I got a job the day he left,
Dont let no one say I can't take care of myself,
And I finally get some sleeping done in bed.

But I planted flowers down on my hands and knees,
Trimmed them and watered every day,
Problem with flowers, they don't do what you need,
And end up in the garbage anyway.

Hey mister don't call me tough,
Keep it down for heavens sake,
Every time someone tells me,
Look how "resilient" you can be,
It's an invite to see how much I might could take.

But I planted flowers down on my hands and knees,
Trimmed them and watered every day,
Problem with flowers, they do just as they please,
And when winter comes you can never make them stay.
And they end up in the garbage anyway.
