SMITH ST

Woohoo hey hey
Just a child being a child
She didnt do what you had told her too
Little big-eyed girl in a long world
Maybe she embarrassed you

With your fist you struck her down
You walked away you left her screaming
People lift their feet and step around
Im just as guilty

You wouldnt treat a dog like that
Wouldnt kick it in the ribs and throw it out the back
Woo no

So what else could she do but run to you
When you walked off and left her in the streets all broken down
I cant understand the force of your hand
With strength of four men wouldnt knock me off my feet

She was only three
Its too late for me and my apologies
I still feel guilty for what I did not do
I should have helped you

I bet youve been hurt before
And you swore that you never would
Now look into your daughters eyes
Are they just a mirror of your own childhood?

You wouldnt treat a dog like that
You wouldnt kick it in the ribs and throw it out the back
You wouldnt treat a dog like that
You wouldnt kick it in the ribs and throw it out the back
You wouldnt treat a dog like that
You wouldnt kick it in the ribs and throw it out the back
Hey ohh

You wouldnt treat a dog like that
And all we do is turn our backs
