lyrics

When I was born my mother said
My cup runneth over
I got a girl her hair is red
My daddy said lets take her home
We’re movin' to a house we own
Her brother’s sittin' waitin' for her ooh

I grew up in the Garden State
A place called New Jersey
Frozen food was all I ate
We weren’t rich we weren’t poor
Took my allowance to the store
Bought another top ten 45 yeah ooh

Chorus: For all that I know
This is how it should go
No need for pretending
I can stop waiting around
Cause I’ve already found
My happy ending

I had a son then another son
Both born in California
Just in time I got that done
I taught ‘em both to roller skate,
To thy neighbor tolerate
Arrive on time ‘cause it’s rude to others ooh

Some days, stuck inside my head, seems like gettin’ out of bed is hardly worth it
But I drag my body out
Drink a cup of coffee, open up the blinds and to my surprise - the sky is perfect
