Natalie Merchant - Texas Lyrics

(Chorus)
Gonna get what's mine
And wild horses couldn't take it from me
Papa said I'm a golden child
And the whole world's gonna fall at my feet
It's all comin' to me

(Verse)
Going down pickin' when it's harvest time
Gonna get my share, gonna get what's mine for me
Sun is a-blazin' down, but I don't mind
I'm pickin', I'm diggin', it's harvest time for me

(Pre-Chorus)
When I get my little eye on it
When I get my little mind on it
You best believe

(Verse)
Oh, sweet tooth aching in my head
Gonna fill my belly to the brim, oh, yes, indeed
Hive is a-buzzin' in a hollow tree
And I don't care if I gotta kill a little honey bee

(Pre-Chorus)
Cause when I get my little eye on it
When I get my little mind on it
You best believe
Oh, my, my, my, my
It's all comin' to me

(Chorus)
Gonna get what's mine
And wild horses couldn't take it from me
Papa said I'm a golden child
And the whole world's gonna fall at my feet
It's all comin' to me

(Verse_
Poppin' and a-suckin' till the weather is dry
Nobody's boomin' in these busted times like me
Down in Texas where the cattle don't roam
Oil is a-drippin' and the savings and loan - they bleed

(Pre-Chorus)
When I get my little eye on it
When I get my little mind on it
You best believe
Oh, my, my, my, my
It's all comin' to me
It's all comin' to me

(Interlude)
Papa came along and he shook the tree
Down came a butcher and begged for me
Papa shooed away all the honey bees
Papa dug a well and it flows for me
Papa cut the mother-load fish for me
Papa set a fire and it burned for me
Papa put a skillet in the flame to fry
Papa put his medicine in a spoon of mine
Papa said the Lord took a shine to me
Papa said I gotta set the whole world free
Whole world free, whole world free
Oo, papa said, I was gonna be
