Nickel And A Spoon (Escovedo Alejandro)

When I turn twenty-one I'm gonna make a change Turn my back on what I was And make you proud of what I'm not If it's my life why tear it down And make me feel this way I do my best with what I've got Why do you tear it down? Mama's not talkin' now Dad, he's fallen off the track Sister's on a rampage And brother, he's planning his silent attack My family's up and moved away They couldn't stand the heat Why build a house just to burn it down Another love-torn mystery You take a nickel and a spoon And a crooked lover's tune Might not add up to much Just a nickel and a spoon
