Gripped With That Leg

How did so much land
On your shoulders
Would you be quiet now it’s over

To know I gripped with that leg
For so long now it scares me
I buried my head in the sand
So I wouldn’t have to see his hand

Mommy I’m so tired
I didn’t sleep that night
Oh how did so much land on you?
And how you ever gonna
Sleep the night thru’?
How did so much land on your shoulders?
And I don’t ever want you to get older

Raspberry Beret on
The front room radio
You listened to that record till you
Grooved a little hole
Playing mommy jealous and proud
She’d never stoop to that level
No not now
And that dirt came
And that dirt came around

It wasn’t her
But it shouldn’t have been me
It wasn’t her
But who’s hand’s on who’s knee
Yeah yeah

Mommy I’m so tired
I didn’t sleep last night
How did so much land on your shoulders
And I don’t ever
Want you to get any older
And how did so much land on you
I don’t ever wanna
Sleep the night thru’

Mommy I’m so tired of carrying
What’s not mine

It’s not overt but it’s so borderline
For a little girl

Get off is a loose term
Get off is a loose term
In general

How did so much land on your shoulders
I don’t ever want you to get older
Was it the war that did you in
Cuz I’m not sure they could have fixed
You here
