Small Y'all

Album: Hemingway's Whiskey (2010)
  • Honey, you think he's got an attitude
    So you treat him just a little too rude
    Buddy, you think she's a little too cold
    So you act like a two year old

    Don't it make you feel low, Joe?
    Don't it make you feel mean, Jean?
    Don't it make you feel ashamed of yourself?
    Don't it make you feel small, y'all?

    Boy, you say something bad about her brother
    Girl, you say something mean about his mother
    Tempers flare and insults fly
    And you're both wanting to die

    Don't you feel like a jerk, Kirk?
    Don't you feel like a ninny, Jenny?
    Don't it make you feel ashamed of yourself?
    Don't it make you feel small, y'all?

    Lady, you say you don't love him no more
    And mister, you kick down the bedroom door
    She calls you names you never heard before
    And now it's a full scale war

    Don't it make you feel crazy, Daisy?
    Mentally ill, Bill?
    Don't it make you feel ashamed of yourself?
    Don't it make you feel small, y'all?

    Six o'clock, eight o'clock, nine o'clock, ten
    The neighbors, all know that you're at it again
    And two little kids just a few feet away
    Hear every word you say

    Don't it make you feel bad, Dad?
    Don't it make you feel wrong, Mom?
    Don't it make you feel ashamed of yourself?
    Don't it make you feel small, y'all?

    Don't it make you feel ashamed of yourself?
    Don't it make you feel small, y'all?

    With a pickle in the middle
    And a mustard on top Writer/s: BOBBY BRADDOCK
