about this table


Jimmy came back home from Boston
He had a suitcase in his hand
The kind you take for trips you're lost on
Or when you're playing in a band

He told his mama
He told her right
He told her everything and
She just smiled

Jimmy came back home, he quarreled
With everybody in his path
He said it's easy if you listen
But no one cares, so they just laugh

He told his mama
He told her right
He told her everything and
She just smiled
