  • Just the two of us

    C'mon hai-hai, we goin' to the beach
    Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat
    Oh where's mama? she's takin a little nap in the trunk
    Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk
    Now I know what you're thinkin', it's kind of late to go swimmin'
    But you know your mama, she's one of those type of women
    That do crazy things, and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
    Don't play with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it (no!)
    And don't look so upset, why you actin' bashful?
    Don't you want to help da-da build a sand castle? (yeah!)
    And mama said she wants to show how far she can float
    And don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
    It's just a little scratch, it don't hurt, her was eatin'
    Dinner while you were sweepin' and spilled ketchup on her shirt
    Mama's messy isn't she? we'll let her wash off in the water
    And me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we?

    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!

    See honey, there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
    A place called prison and a place called jail
    And da-da's probably on his way to all of 'em except one
    'Cause mama's got a new husband and a stepson
    And you don't want a brother do ya? (nah)
    Maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
    I'll explain it to ya
    But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad
    She was bein' mean to dad and made him real real mad
    But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
    Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin' to climb out (wa'!)
    I told you it's okay hai hai, want to ba-ba?
    Take a night-night? nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?
    Her make goo-goo ca-ca? da-da change your dia-dee
    Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty
    Your dad'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
    Ninety-seven bonnie and clyde, me and my daughter

    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!

    Wake up sweepy head we're here, before we pway
    We're gonna take mama for a whittle walk along the pier
    Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
    Mama's too sweepy to hear you screamin' in her ear (ma-ma!)
    That's why you can't get her to wake, but don't worry
    Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
    Here, you want to help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)
    We'll tie it to her footsie then we'll roll her off the dock
    Ready now, here we go, on the count of three dummies
    One, two, free, wee! (whoosh)
    There goes mama, spwashin' in the wa-ta
    No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order
    No more step-da-da, no more new brother
    Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)
    Now we'll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk
    But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk

    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    And when we ride!
    Just the two of us
    Just the two of us
    Just you and I!
