Don't hit me with the mangle Granny
Please don't hit me with the mangle granny
I know I was a naughty person
I wouldn't sleep with that man you brought home
and the meal I cooked was worse than
the time I burnt the gruel
and had to sweep the yard
with a toothbrush for a punishment
please don't hit me hard.
I know that you don't love me
and no-one ever will
So I'll just go off and take some drugs
I think that is the drill.
Then maybe if I'm lucky
I'll meet a lovely man
but then he'll just beat me up and be unfaithful
because he knows he can.
Then I'll have some children
who'll be taken into care
then spend some time in a
mental home and probably lose my hair.
At the end I'll dribble and only talk
with people who aren't really there.
You see the way it will turn out
a truly awful tangle
but you could save me
make the choice
don't hit me with the mangle.
