Things I should have said to him. All he wanted to do was fight. I didn't.
Written 1990.

Mr Wise Guy

Did you pound your head
On the crib
When you went to bed at night?
As a babe you went too far
Cuz Darlin', you ain't right

Didn't mommy ever tell you
Time and time again?
That Darlin' you should quit
You're gonna dent your brain

The things you do
Makes me wonder
I can't believe my eyes-
Yah, they sure are stupid
And that's far from being wise

You're so mean and hateful
You ever ignore me too
It ain't no love filled ever after
Hanging around with you...

So go pound your head some
more, Dent what little, isn't in
Then you might hear like I do-
"How can anyone put up with him?"
