Jeannie Becomes a Mom

Moving outside Topeka
Jeannie gonna buy a big house there
Split level, a cul-de-sac
Jeannie gonna get her some big hair, yeah
Gonna find a father figure
‘Cause she, ’cause she a deadbeat dad who’s crushed cigarettes
Jeannie gonna find a keeper
Gonna find a keeper to treat her well
But the world don’t stop
Even when you’re living in colour
No, the world don’t stop
Time is only gonna pass you by
Now you’re in real life
Mmm little boy go ‘coo coo coo coo coo’
Mmm new clothes, new sho-o-o-o-oes
White linen and lavishly perfumed
Are you gonna paint that apple blue?
But the world don’t stop
Mmm even when you’re living in colour
No, the world don’t stop
Time is only gonna pass you by
Now you’re in real life, now you’re in real life
Now you’re in real life, now you’re in real life
But the world don’t stop
Mmm even when you’re living in colour
No, the world don’t stop
Time is only gonna pass you by
Now you’re in real life, now you’re in real life
Now you’re in real life, now you’re in real life
