Chocolate Genius – My Mom Lyrics

[Verse 1]
They got five televisions
In a house full of three
Look up on that fake fireplace
You know the buck-toothed boy’s me
See that wood panel room
That’s where I learned to drink
See that hole in the wall
That was Seagram’s I think

[Verse 2]
And that tree was a goalpost
That bathroom it was a shroud
That closet it was a phone booth
And that mirror it was a crowd
See the guy with the bad knees
And his heart on his sleeve
Watch him slip me ten dollars
When it comes time to leave

[Chorus]
It’s been five years and some change
And this world is gettin’ so strange
But this house smells just the same
And my mom
My sweet mom
She don’t remember my name
My mom
She can’t remember my name
My mom

[Verse 3]
I sit on a bed
And I kiss her right behind the ear
She calls out for a dog
That’s been dead for a year
I say “How is it going?”
Just like I didn’t know
I hold onto both of her hands
Too afraid to let go

[Verse 4]
And five times exactly, no more and no less
She says “How you been eatin’ boy?”
And I say “OK, I guess”
In this room where she made me
Each day she grows weak
She flips on the Golden Girls
And the first tear hits my cheek

[Chorus]
It’s been five years and some change
And this world is gettin’ so strange
But this old house smells just the same
And my mom
My sweet mom
She don’t remember my name
My mom
Can’t remember my name
She’s my mom now
She can’t remember my name
My mom
Can’t remember my name
My mom
