"Oh Stacey (Look What You've Done)" as written by and Abigail Harding Boyan Chowdhury....
Oh Stacey, look what you've done
You think that your the only one

Well she should have gone to school,
And she should have made it through, but she never
And she should have studied hard,
And she should have played the part, but she never
Oh she should have kept her head
And got out of bed more in the mornings
And she should have had her day,
She'd have done it her way but she never

She made her father worry 'til he was sick
Found him on the couch one night all cold and stiff
Now she drinks away the Will and she's not proud of it

Oh Stacey, look what you've done
You think that your the only one

Well she should have had more time to get to know the world a little better
And she should have had more friends to glue her brain and stick it back together
But she had to go around and disagree with everyone she knew
And now all her friends
They're going to help her spend her fortune

She made her father worry 'til he was sick
Found him on the couch one night all cold and stiff
Now she drinks away the Will and she's not proud of it

"Oh mother was it always going to be this way?"
It didn't have to daughter but I knew that's what you'd say
"I will put flowers on and visit every week"
But that won't wake your father from his everlasting sleep.

She made her father worry 'til he was sick
Found him on the couch one night all cold and stiff
Now she drinks away the Will and she's not proud of it

    General Commentboth the 'well she should have..' verses are the story of my life.

    General CommentA very naughty and disagreeable girl (okay, woman) who for some reason in the video goes around killing all the Zutons. Maybe it's remnants of teenage angst, running around getting drunk, being unable to hold down a job and worrying her parents sick. Maybe it's a morality lesson to us all.
