I went to your street
At seven in the mornin'
And while you were asleep
I read your newspaper
I saw you out walkin'

Out walkin' with your father
Pretendin' not to see me
Pretendin' to be a family
I know you tried, baby
I know you tried
I know you tried to go on

Saw a metal object
Lyin' in the street
And when we turned away
It stood itself up
You circled the island
In a Chevy caprice
You stuck out your tongue
And your nose began to bleed

I know you tried, baby
I know you tried
I know you tried to go on
I know you tried, baby
I know you tried
I know you tried to go on
