lyrics

The Road to Ruin

you take out the trash and wonder how it ever got this good
the neighbors have stopped fighting, but their kids toys are strewn all over the hood
at the end of the block the pizza hut is full of teenagers
playing space invaders & makin' out till someone gets pregnant

Chorus:

and so it goes, and no one's there to change it
the mess we make, looks like the love we created
& the road to ruin's paved with good intentions
if horny is intention, and giving it away is like pavement

2.
& back at the church all the ladies ask, "where is Becky Sue?"
she's moved to Indiana with her cousin Kris who came up from Yazoo
& the jello salad melts at the potluck in the park after church
& all the gals are jealous cause nancy harlan's chicken
is pretty much as good as it gets.

3.
now she's back on the bottle, knocking over figurines & planters
lookin' so damn sexy, rolling off the sofa and nailing the corner of a table
but she's the one who turns me on, now that all the kids are mad and gone for good now
& thanks to menopause I can have her any time without a condom on
