His momma was right when she said
"Oh, my boy's so handsome--he's gonna break hearts!"
Guess she shoulda reached in her own gene pool,
changed the future--not for his sake. Maybe somehow cook
up a different recipe for a son who don't hurt nobody.
Steppin' on figures, number-crunching disadvantages to his
Would really take some time on deciding whether he'd be so interested
he'd never get bored,
or so disinterested he's bored
all the time.
Momma shoulda changed her mind
about havin a repressed
and steely guy like him come out.
Think of the father, every day asking his son
"Goddamit, boy, when you gonna thank me for
makin love to your momma to bring you about?"
Inconsiderate sot, that one.
Shoulda thought about that decision more.
Shoulda considered all the other people he might hurt.
Shoulda kept her legs shut.
