"Give The Kid A Break" as written by and Wagner/cooper/ezrin....
Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
Don't know why I'm down here
Don't deserve to roast or bake
I'm fighting off slanderous allegations
Why don't you give the kid a break

Don't think maybe we could talk this over
You're a reasonable man
Could we discuss my grave situation
I'm a miserable man
And I'm in the frying pan
Give the kid a break

Don't question my judgement
He only reaped what he sowed
He cast his pearls before swine
And that's good enough for me

I don't want to talk it over
Even tho' I'm a reasonable man
Sonny, from over here looks like you're in no position to bargain
You're a convicted man
You're right in the frying pan

Give the kid a break

Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said (I'm sorry)
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
It might be some sort of imperfection
It might be a defection or a, a clear case of misdirection yeah
It must be a small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
Give the kid a break

    General CommentThe amazing thing about this album is that no one who isn't familiar with Alice would ever believe that it consists of lighthearted SHOW TUNES like Give the Kid a Break! "Alice Cooper Goes to Hell" just sounds so menacing! It's too bad Alice abandoned this format so long ago.
