Trouble Runs in the Family

Momma’s gonna getcha, best you beware
She been hearin’ your fool footsteps down the kitchen stairs
Evenin’ times the indication
Snatch the apple from the tree
She been keepin’ to the backroads
Where trouble runs in the family
Trouble runs in the family

Soap suds on the dishes, silky to the touch
She likes starin’ in the rainbows,
then likes to watch em go pop
Pop goes the belly button, pop goes reality
He gone moved to the eastside
Where trouble runs from his family
Trouble runs from his family

But oh, got so far to go
And oh, got so far to get home

Welcome to religion, welcome to the sport
Gotta teach you proper values, different than what you got
Hear the preacher preachin’, bags of his-story
He got nothin’ against you
He just don’t approve of your family-way
No he don’t approve of your family-way

But oh, got so far to go
And oh, got so far to get home

Momma’s gonna getcha, sure as prophecy
She been likened to your footsteps
Where trouble runs in the family
