Velma Lee Lyrics

You earned what you made
If you bought it, you paid
And if that thing broke, then you fixed it
You worked with your hands
Carved a life from the land
Made from scratch meant you did more than mix it
After ninety-two years, her eyes were still clear
And her tongue was as sharp as a switch
But her mind scattered round, in her hospital gown
From a bed in old Goodall-Witcher
That one's a shit-ass, he don't know
Men are all sons-a-bitches
You'll see when you grow
I tell you these things, as related to me
By Bertha, Henrietta, Velma Lee
Her beauty displayed in an old picture frame
Standing next to a soldier, that gave her his name
Damn near sixty-years, through the happy and the tears
And a love that was one in the same
But when she watched Woodrow die, something happened inside
It turned hard some things that once had been soft
The last incarnation of the great generation
With a chip on her shoulder that would never come off
And right at the end, went to see her again
Even good lives at the end can seem sad
I heard people say It was her last good day
But to me, it was the end of the bad
I wonder why... Shit, I don't know
Du hast dein Bauchmerzen...
Watch them cops when you go
I tell you these things as related to me
By Bertha, Henrietta, Velma Lee
I tell you these things as related to me
By Bertha, Henrietta, Velma Lee

You earned what you made
If you bought it, you paid
And if that thing broke, then you fixed it
You worked with your hands
Carved a life from the land

After ninety-two years, her eyes were still clear
And her tongue was as sharp as a switch
But her mind scattered round, in her hospital gown
From a bed in old Goodall-Witcher
That one's a shit-ass, he don't know
Men are all sons-a-bitches
You'll see when you grow
I tell you these things, as related to me
