I will change my name when I grow up
to something less remorseful
it constantly reminds me of myself
—Whenever someone calls me.
Our father broke his promise yet again
to take us to the ball game
I swore last time, this time would be the last time
—I wish I'd never met him!
Let's go, George, back home to Auntie
she cares for us, she says she means it
wipe your eyes, you know big boys don't cry
—Don't be a sissy.
Georgie Boy, isn't this exciting?!
It's just you and me against the entire planet!
I'll let you fly the invisible spaceship
—If you promise to be gutsy.
Stop this useless hunger for affection, George
'cause every day tastes like the next day
but the next day doesn't come for kids like us, today
