Judgment Day

 

The day that I was born a lucky star crashed into the ground

people around here would say that a girl like me should just try to settle down

I was fourteen when I went and stole my Daddy’s brand new car

and woke up two days later with the taste of blood still in my mouth

 

Daddy said, you got to change your ways

before the Judgment Day, before the Judgment Day

Get down on your knees and pray

wash your sins away, before the Judgment Day

 

The day that I was born my guardian angel took a coffee break

most folks around here would say I deserve exactly what I get

Like the time I went to visit my cousin out in Tennessee

well, I saw their finest and they got the worst of me

 

They all said, you got to change your ways

before the Judgment Day, before the Judgment Day

Get down on your knees and pray

wash your sins away, before the Judgment Day

 

You got to walk the narrow and straight

try not to stray before it gets too late

So, I’ve got to change my ways

before the Judgment Day, before the Judgment Day
