He was standing on the corner again
While she was praying for God to forgive his sin
Outta'nowhere,two inches of lead
To him it's still a mystery
How the bullet missed his head
But granny cried,"laud Jesus,help my baby boy
'Cause he ain't doin'the things he's supposed to"
Then she cried,"laud Jesus,it would bring me joy
To see him live to be someone who loves you"
Chorus:
You can't keep livin'on granny's angel
It's about time you get one of your own
You can't keep livin'on granny's angel
'Cause whatcha gonna do when granny's gone
Stuck in traffic at a quarter 'til nine
Shirley's cursing the fatal wreck on the side
No compassion 'cause she don't realize
Had she been any earlier
It would have been her life
But granny cried,"laud Jesus,help my baby girl
To do the things she knows that she's supposed to"
Then she cried,"laud Jesus,it would mean the world
To see her live to be someone who loves you because
Repeat chorus...
