Lyrics

Mama’s Got a Crutch (3:52)
Words and Music: Mark David Manders

Mama’s got a crutch, Daddy’s afraid she’s gonna walk
She’s got one foot in the grave and she stumbles when she talks
And all the neighbors say one day they’re gonna call the cops
Mama’s got a crutch, Daddy’s afraid she’s gonna walk
Daddy hid the keys, so Mama’s still alive
He tried to meet this thing head on but now I’m afraid he’s lost the drive
So he stares out the window as life passes him by
Mama’s got a crutch and Daddy’s got a thorn in his side
Flat tires and bicycle chains
All that’s left of my childhood remains
Flat tires and rusty old chains
Not enough chrome left to steal
Little brother can’t talk and he’s almost three
He eats his TV dinner and just stares at the screen
He can’t tell the difference between a nightmare and a dream
Sometimes I can’t either
Chorus
Now I’m sitting at the window, staring at the phone
A pair of shoes and an orange jump suit are the only clothes I own
And I’d give the shirt right off my back if I had one on
For someone to pay me a visit
Chorus
Repeat Chorus
