lyrics

THIS CHILD
just like that little neighborhood rat
in a gang all up to no good
daddy said dont play with fire
and i lied i understood
words like that to a curious cat
well it simmered on my mind for days
seconds passed when i lit the match
and the house went up in flames

yes you buy me dresses
but i play with guns
swing for the fences
aint gonna tame this child

i was a lean little serious teen
when Eugene cornered me in the hall
calling me out up in front of a crowd
his fat fingers in my face and all
well i was scared steep and afraid to speak
with my knees all weak in the joint
til i pushed back bent his fingers back
til it snapped and i made my point
