BOB

Bob goes to church every Sunday
every Sunday that the fish ain't bitin'
Bob never have to have dinner with the Preacher
cos' Bob never bothered gettin' married

He likes to drink a beer or two every now and again
He always had more dogs thn he ever had friends

Bob ain't light in the loafers
He might kneel but he never bends over

Bob takes care of his Momma
She's the only one he lets call him Robert
She don't drive anymore so he takes her to the store
and keeps her yard lookin' just like she wants it

Every week at the beauty shop Bob's Momma hears
that another woman's paid 'nother man disappears

Robert ain't exactly scared o' women
He's just got his own way o' livin'

Bob's still gotta antenna on a pole
2 channels come in 2 more comin' through
He used to watch the news but he don't anymore

Ain't none of it new it's the same as before
He figures all any of it's any good for's
keepin' averybody bored till there ain't nobody
like Bob anymore

Bob takes care of his Momma
She's a mess but he feels like he oughtta
a big a mess today as bob will say
"she's a big un and she's gonna be a lotta"

He likes to drink a beer or two every now and again
He always had more dogs than he ever had friends

Bob ain't light in the loafers
He might kneel but he never bends over
