Machine - There But For The Grace Of God Go I

rate me

Carlos and Carmen Vidal just had a child<br />

A lovely girl with a crooked smile<br />

Now they gotta split 'cause the Bronx ain't fit<br />

For a kid to grow up in<br />

Let's find a place they say, somewhere far away<br />

With no blacks, no Jews and no gays<br />

<br />

But for the grace of God, there go I, I, I. <br />

There but for the grace of God,<br />

Go I, I, I, I<br />

I, I, I, I.<br />

<br />

Poppy and the family left the dirty streets<br />

To find a quiet place overseas<br />

And year after year the kid has to hear<br />

The do's, the don'ts and the dears<br />

And when she's ten years old she digs that Rock 'n' Roll<br />

But Poppy bans it from home<br />

<br />

But for the grace of God, there go I, I, I. <br />

There but for the grace of God,<br />

Go I, I, I, I<br />

I, I, I, I.<br />

<br />

Baby, she turns out to be a natural freak<br />

Gaining weight and losing sleep.<br />

And when she's sweet sixteen, she packs her things and leaves<br />

With a man she met on the street<br />

Carmen starts to bawl, bangs her head to the wall<br />

Too much love is worse than none at all<br />

<br />

But for the grace of God, there go I, I, I. <br />

There but for the grace of God,<br />

Go I, I, I, I<br />

I, I, I, I.<br />

There but for the grace of God,<br />

Go I, I, I, I<br />

I, I, I, I.<br />

It's not "Popping pills and smoking weed". It's "Gaining weight and losing sleep".
