Because he had curly hair, that was too lazy to stand up
He never wore shoes, had grass blades and dirt for socks
And always had his hands up-
Spoke with accent so thick, English became scared
Thought the world spun only on Tuesdays
And never got classified as weird.
Before father was just man, in between crossed legs he’d fit
When smoking was bad, and music made sense
Just after movies cost so little, no cable, no flick-
Television had two channels, so cartoons were a delicacy
Poverty was normalization, uptown was another nation
Quite a sight for blues eyes to sea’.
You’re so troubled, and wasting time has become your hobby
Yet it isn’t your fault, tea? No? Alright.
At least you used to drink this, when you were darker.
I guess it’s only emotional now, you’ll wake up when you’re alive.
