lyrics

I'M GONNA TELL MY SON TO GROW UP
PRETTY AS THE GRASS IS GREEN AND
WHIP SMART AS THE ENGLISH CHANNEL'S WIDE

AND I'M GONNA TELL MY SON TO KEEP HIS
MONEY IN HIS MATTRESS AND HIS
WATCH ON ANY HAND BETWEEN HIS THIGHS

AND I'M GONNA LOCK MY SON UP IN A
TOWER TIL I WRITE MY WHOLE LIFE
STORY ON THE BACK OF HIS BIG BROWN EYES

WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES

I'M GONNA TELL MY SON TO JOIN A
CIRCUS SO THE DEATH IS CHEAP AND
GAMES ARE JUST ANOTHER WAY OF LIFE

AND I'M GONNA TELL MY SON TO BECOME
A PROPHET OF MISTAKES BECAUSE FOR
EVERY TRUTH THERE ARE HALF A MILLION LIES

AND I'M GONNA LOCK MY SON UP IN A
TOWER TIL HE LEARNS TO LET HIS
HAIR DOWN LONG ENOUGH TO CLIMB OUTSIDE

WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
WHEN THEY DO THE DOUBLE DUTCH THEY STAND TENSIES
