Every time we’d go to Pat’s house,
I’d come back home with a bump on my head,
From that old screen door, that used to swing back so fast,
Just to hit me in the face, and knock me down … like before.

Well, that house was old, but so was she.
Twenty watt bulbs … what a sight to see.
And when she died, she left trunks of memories,
Because she saved every damn thing,
From everyone she loved.

Well, always do what you’re told.
Put your socks back on, or you’ll catch cold.
We use to play all day, in a closet full of clothes,
Just to come back out with mothballs up our nose.

Well, that house was old, but so was she.
You’d ask for two, but she’d hand you three.
And when she died, she left trunks of memories,
Because she saved every damn thing,
From everyone she loved.

But, every time we’d go to Pat’s house,
I’d come back home with a bump on my head,
From that old screen door, that used to swing back so fast,
Just to hit me in the face, and knock me down … once more.
