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
