lyrics

Me and my friends were busy thinkin bout NBA Jams
It caught us off guard the stories of the movies
And holdin hands
I turned white to the news that Jimmy
Had slipped his girl the tongue
We asked my friend’s older brother,
He said she’s probly,
Havin a baby, a baby soon

Up all night in the basement with broken thumbs
Spider webs in our eyes, giant heads, we’re on fire
You can’t stop the Glove
We’re not too far from the shift
To vandals and alcohol
But, right now, we’re missin’ our chances
For babies
I’m not sure… I mind at all

Goddammit, I really wanted those Jordans
In the Fifth Grade
I think I was Eleven
Now I’m Twenty Nine
And they’re mine-o-mine
Eleven to Heaven
Thank you Phil Knight
You’re my Sa-av-ior

Heart attack moans student loans I’ve got everything all figured out
Believe in yourself. Speak with no uh’s.
Inspire artificial clout
You’re carefree demeanor
Will get you between her that’s what its all about
A little fib and some rubber
Will keep the babies
From fall…falling out
