Mama's never been this sick before
Told me that the war was over
But mama, that ain't true
There ain't been a war since '92
Mama's never been this sick before
Slap me on the face for cursing and speaking out of turn
Mama, I ain't ever gonna learn

But maybe when the war is over
I could get a new car and a job
And maybe when the funeral's over
I could get a new car and a job
Well, I'm wrong, so what?

Daddy's never been this old before
Mama's on a boat cruise
And she came swimmin' through
Daddy thinks mama's not comin' home
Daddy's never been this old before
Took a shovel to the backyard
And said "son, ya ain't worth shit."
Dug a hole to leave me lying here

Maybe when the war is over
I could get a new car and a job
Maybe when her funeral's over
I could get a new car and a job
Well I'm wrong, so what?
Well I'm wrong, so what?

Hey mister lonely man across the aisle
I'm yours

Maybe when the war is over
I could get a new car and a job
Maybe when her funeral's over
Mama could go swimmin'
Not get lost
Well I'm wrong, so what?
Well I'm wrong, so what?
Well I'm wrong, so what?
