gumby jaws lament lyrics – barnes & barnes

(“weird” al yankovic – accordion)
i’ve never really understood
why my family hated me
but i know they did
all of them.
right from the start.
i never had many friends of my own
we moved a lot
we had to
my mother was mentally ill
and she would start fires in nurseries
so we had to move a lot.
i never graduated from school
i just stopped going after the seventh grade
i remember not being able to do enough pushups
and this fat h*m*s*xual gym coach
kept pushing me on the back of my neck
that’s when i first realized
that i didn’t want to become another
old fat h*m*s*xual gym coach
life is like that.
i watched a lot of television
mostly the game shows
i could tell you the cost of about anything
between 1966 and 1969
but that and a nickel won’t get me on a bus
i love buses
i really like the smell don’t you
i could live in the middle of a crowded bus
if someone asked you for a quarter
so that they could play a song on the jukebox
and you gave it to them
and they bought a cup of coffee instead
would you be mad
i’ve never really understood
why my family hated me
but i know they did
all of them.
right from the start.
that’s why.
yeah.
