Tuesday morning now
I gotta have somewhere to go
I call up tommy now
I call him on the telephone
Won't you wake up and come with me now
I'm going to the pawn and loan
Walking down thirty three
Walking on thirty o

Well what am i supposed to think
I drop a nickel in the sink
I love people like a brother now
But i'm not gonna be their mother now
What if someone walked up to me
And like an apple cut right through me
I'm not just gonna stand there grinnin
I'm not the one who's sinnin

Screwdriver

Now that you have heard my story now
I've got a little ending to it now
Whenever you go out alone
Take a little dog a bone
Think about your little sister
Then you got to drive it home
With a screwdriver

I got a little feeling goin' now
I got a little feeling goin' now

    General CommentThere's a line missing, in the end of the 3rd verse..

    And like an apple cut right through me
    >>I'm not just gonna stand there grinnin
    cause I'm not the one who's sinnin

    General CommentBooya, this song is sweet. He breaks it down old school style with the guitar in this song. If I could play the guitar like that I'd do crack (or so my friend says).

    General Commentit's really a fun and simple riff to play, and it ROCKS!

    but about the song....i dont know, maybe it's just my perverted mind, but does anyone else find something wrong with the line, "Then think about your little sister, then you got to drive it home..."?

    i'll leave it at that

    General CommentCould you explain yourself a lil' better, Weezday? 'coz I don't speak english very well so I don't understand the possible double sense of that line...
