No Son Of Ours

lyrics

Joey's on the phone
Mama what the hell is that on the lawn?
Of course you didn't know
It's not for you, she said, it's for God

And who are you to mock
How your father knows the ways of the world
With the funny way you talk
Yeah we noticed that you hit like a girl

Joey don't come around
From a son to a face in the crowd
Yeah, you'd sure make a good human bomb

And we all talk about the weather
All of us together
Wrote it in a letter
You should do yourself a favor and jump

He ain't no son of ours
Just because
He ain't no son of ours

Brother's at loss
Yeah, he doesn't even know where to start
That little Cassanova says
Yeah my girlfriend she's so fucking hot

While Sunday's minister says
You sully a good name with your flaws
Tittle tattle tales
Trading your emotional scars

Joey don't come around
From a son to a face in the crowd
Yeah, you'd sure make a good human bomb

And we all talk about the weather
All of us together
Wrote it in a letter
You should do yourself a favor and jump

He ain't no son of ours
Just because
He ain't no son of ours

Joey don't come around
From a son to a face in the crowd
Yeah, you'd sure make a good human bomb

And we all talk about the weather
All of us together
Wrote it in a letter
You should do yourself a favor and jump

He ain't no son of ours
Just because
He ain't no son of ours
Just because
He ain't no son of ours
Just because
He ain't no son of ours
Just because

"Casey's stage persona is equal parts James Brown, Elvis Presley, and Bono...but then comes the surprise, etched in cursive on the head of a pin. Listen closely, and the songs are beautiful, heartfelt, and wrenching." - MTV News
