Doo Wop Group

(Before the Bomb Drops)

"Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn't be goin' around talkin' about takin' these stupid shop courses if I was. It's like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, "This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it." Kids lose everything unless there's someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should." - Stand by Me

When I was young I was always grounded
Surrounded by thoughts, everything that was caught amounting
Inside my head and I ceased to exist
That's how I lived and I was giving ADD pills so I would chill
But the images I'd see were never real
So I stopped talking to them and put on Tupac
It's like I was someone else

I wish I was born in the 50's singing in an old school Doo Wop Group
About everything I couldn't be, I know I shouldn't sing
But I do it anyway, cuz I don't believe in reality
It means nothing to me and I'm happy that way

And Momma said, "Joe you're grounded again"
When Connor came over drunk following into his trends
Full bottle of Whiskey straight to the dome
Scared to death because his fate was unknown
His Dad was a druggee, it got ugly
He thought, maybe this will get him to love me
Kids from my school never learn about heart
I had to watch it fall apart before I could start
My real life

I wish I was born in the 50's singing in an old school Doo Wop Group
About everything I couldn't be, I know I shouldn't sing
But I do it anyway, cuz I don't believe in reality
It means nothing to me and I'm happy that way

Momma I can see them come
I'm just trying to be someone
I don't know where I'm going now
Singing
Shoobee Doo Wop Bop Bop
Shoobee Doo Wop Bop Bop
Shoobee Doo Wop Bop Bop
If you care about me now
Just let me walk right out
I don't know where I'm going now!
