Lyrics that stick

If someone’s watching up above
You’ll see how much my dear I love,
So leave him here, I need him now and always will.

Iights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough

No pot-bellied, baggy-eyed bully’ll toss him around
I don’t give a damn what he does
As long as he does what he likes!

My first single purchase

He says “hope bites the dust behind all the closed doors”
And pus and grime ooze from its scab crusted sores

The Osmonds?
