Steely Dan – Cringemaker lyrics

What ever happened to my college belle
When did she turn into the wife from hell

What are we coming to
What have they done to you

In the beginning we rode high on the hog
Down in the kitchen now it's dog eat dog

Our little cringemaker up on the second floor
Sweet little cringemaker
Hey listen cringemaker who locked the bedroom door
Sweet little cringemaker
Sweet little cringemaker

And every time I go to make my play
She rolls mighty boulders in my way

Say little cringemaker it's such a bumpy ride
Hey little cringemaker thought you were on my side

And every time I get to have my say
She just laughs and looks the other way

Oh little cringemaker this time you hurt my pride
Sweet little cringemaker
Say little cringemaker where am I gonna hide
Sweet little cringemaker
Sweet little cringemaker

Nobody told us when we started out
Just what this life is really all about
Sometimes I wonder and you do too
If I could do it all over would I
Still do it all over you

She calls me daddy and I just go numb
Down in the bottom where the love comes from
Sweet little cringemaker what happened on the way
Sweet little cringemaker to where we are today

I try to figure but I'm way too dumb
How we got here from where we started from
Cringe I guess we always knew
Swee' little who we would turn into
Sweet little cringemaker
