cry baby usa

speed freaky in my genes
next door chunks of roof
fall like shake
evening out our porch door mouths
proof that all of this is worth it
far from routine
the best friend i've ever had
besides cork and bottle
don't discount each worth
you hold in your hands
like song
i'm a cry baby cry baby usa
there's nothing to see in doubt
i've already been to missour-ah
miserable i'm never going back
lonely on the stoop
come to me child
come to me
