Sometimes, you just make me have a stroke


They called it a mistake
To give to someone so young
The power to break the bank
Well I've learned to bite my tongue
You're frivolous and flightily
And don't think before you act
I'm not the one to act lightly
And I like to know the facts.

All you talk about is money
I won't give you no more
You bought boats and a bunny,
Half a small island off shore
You take me with you shopping
Oh how those trips I abhor
You hear a puppy barking
"Can I have it?", you implore

When you're near, I have a stroke
You're voice I hear, I have a stroke,
My temples throb, I have a stroke
My vision blurs, I have a stroke

I guess you're spoiled rotten
When you come to meet with me
Dressed in your silk, never cotton
Find a new bank is my failed plea
You come to me for counsel
And never take my advice
At this point I am doubtful
How much more I can survive
