Dear And The Headlights – Skinned Knees & Gapped Teeth lyrics

Was it a broken arm, or collar bone?
Well it depended on the week
And we with me black eyes, stitched
From head to feet uncomfortably happy
All skinned knees and gapped teeth

Remember summers with the speak and spell?
Trying to make the robot cuss
If mother knew the words we used
While she worked she would she fuming
Cause it's not how she raised me

And when you taped over a
Good half of the wedding tape
I bet you never thought
Thunder Cats would ever make you cry
We sat in disbelief as Lionel made
Plans to slay the whole wedding party
They're disco dancing to their deaths
Oh mom you just don't know it yet

All my hand-me-downs they stuck to me
From all the blood I couldn't keep
Oh such a likely sceneten-year-old body
Face down on Rosal street
My bike passed out on top of me

Remeber how I swore I would
Pass you up in age?
You just scoffed at me
Well I'm still gonna do it
Just haven't quite figured it out how yet

We cornered Teddy Ruxpin
And smashed his story tape
Out put Guns N' Roses in and watched
Him sing along to Appetite for Distruction
Yeah, he knew every word
I'm dying in the hall laughing
Oh John you've got to turn it off

And when you taped over
A good half of the wedding tape
I know you never thought
Thunder Cats would ever be the end
We sat in disbelief as Lionel made
Plans to slay the whole wedding party
Oh John, you've got to turn it off
