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
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
