Though you thought you were the favorite one
Mom always loved me best
If she were here she’d also say
You were nothing but a pest!
You tired her patience to no end
With all your escapades
I was just your decoy
On all your nightly raids
You’d distract her in the kitchen
While I undid the screen
Then out the window you would go
With Terry and Merlene
You knew I’d cover dodge and lie
To keep from getting caught
You taught me well to do the things
That I knew I should not!
I always felt like Ethel
Caught up in Lucy’s scheme
So girl you’ve got some ‘plaining
On why my soul needs cleaned?
I was such an angel
What spell is it you’re under
She loved me best what can I say
I’m too perfect to even wonder!
So Mom if you’re still listening
To this noise we so belabor
Just for this day let’s all pretend
That she’s the one you favor
