Just baked my seventeenth cake today
finger sandwiches on a silver tray
waiting here for him to call
sit around and do nothing at all
I have been here the whole time
I took what you gave and refined
it like sugar it will make you hungry
You don’t even want to know me
Honey—where are you?--answer me—I mean it
Lie—you’re caught up—give it back—I’m waiting
Why can’t you get over it? I don’t know I don’t know
All I see for you is a dead end
Why can’t you just stay in school
When are you gonna get a boyfriend
let me tell you what I’d do
Won’t you find the time to listen
Stop pretending that I fit in
Television eyes-they’re empty
you don’t even want to know me
Are you gonna wear that?--so?--Straighten up—I’m not you
Let me help—stay away—don’t touch me—I just want you to be happy
Why can’t you get over it? I don’t know I don’t know
Mom?--seventeen cakes—I don’t care—get a boyfriend
Turn off the t.v.—I don’t know how—I told you so—I’m warning you
Why can’t you get over it? I don’t know I don’t know
