My Little Sister

My little sister

jumped in the river

all over a fella

who didn’t love her

but said he did.


Watch what you say around my little sister.

She’s kind of slow

from refusing to grow

and I’m not always there to protect her.


If I’d’ve been there

with my little sister

when you were playing cat to her mouse

I’d’ve punched you in the arm

I’d’ve punched you in the ear

I’d’ve punched you in your pretty-boy face

and my sister would still be here.
