Lyrics

My folks call me little John
I like to drive around till dawn
And sleep my way through the day

My dad, he bangs them nails
Sometimes he works, sometimes he fails
And my mom - she never calls

I don’t know which is worse
Mom or Dad or the courts
Or nothing at all
I’ve been ripped and I’ve been torn
I’ve been shuffled since I was born
Through this house of cards

Now my mom, she’s no fool
Got the house and the pool
Went and married some guy with a badge

My dad’s an easy mark
He’s been drunk for the better part
Of my fifteen years

I don’t know which is worse
Mom or Dad or the courts
Or nothing at all
I’ve been ripped and I’ve been torn
I’ve been shuffled since I was born
Through this house of cards
House of cards

My folks call me little John
Seems all my life they’ve been gone
Just gone
