Lyrics:
Baby, I can't make it straight
My boots got stuck and I can't wait
You're the one who's got no tongue
Look and see which way it's run
Man alive! I can't drive my two-bit cares away

Obituaries I seen right through
Brochures of the times we knew
Taxes on the days we spent
Repossessed and maimed and chained
Man alive! I can't drive my two-bit cares away

Accusation and suspects named
Battered husbands, cousins blamed
Holding up your trophy bones
Sticks and stones and lesser-knowns
Man alive! I can't drive my two-bit cares away

And all your hopes can be derailed
No salt in the seas you've sailed
No dreams in the night you lie
All the stars drip from the sky
Man alive! I can't drive my two-bit cares away
Man alive! I can't drive my two-bit cares away
