Your momma & daddy can't take care of themselves
So I'm gonna look after you
Your daddy loves liquor, & your momma needs help
Cause all of her nightmares came true
I got this car when my granddaddy passed So meet me just after last bell
I got twenty dollars it'll get us some gas
We wont get too far & we won't get there fast
But it's twenty dollars further from hell

Leave it to me cause I'm 17
Leave it to me we'll get through
If you'll be my queen then I'll play a king
I'll always look after you

Just leave it to me
I am a king at 17
Leave it to me...
I am the king of 17

We head to the east to catch up to the sun
You smile as you watch it rise

We come from nothing we leave nothing behind
My world is the hope in your eyes
Leave it to me cause I'm 17
Leave it to me we'll get through
If you'll be my queen then I'll play a king
I'll always look after you

Just leave it to me
I am a king at 17
Leave it to me...
I am the king of 17

    General CommentI reckon this is about a friend/boyfriend looking after a girl when she's having a rough time, and trying to help her escape this "hell" that is her life... just my first impression. Surprised this hasn't got any other comments...
