You came to me with all the force of a feather duster
Do you recall how you got your bell rung?
Did you forget you were my pet until you got loose?
Now you’re on your own, strutting on the freeway
And I’ve wept at the thought of your big break

You’re in the back of a Cadillac with a doll catcher
When you were rife with fleas, remember how it stung?
And I weep when I sing about you
For my big break, my big break, it’s my big break
It’s my big break

A bigger bowl, a better bone is all you wanted
I’m still posting bills, boy, won’t you come home?
And I’ve wept at the thought of your big break
It’s your big break, it’s your big break
Your big break
