Sonny growed up in a halfway home He went to the promised land half-way grown He’d jump on a bottle like a dog on a bone ’Bout halfway up the stairs Sonny came to with a knock knock knock In a gold Eldorado with a roll-back top And his front two wheels on a forty-foot drop And he couldn’t think why or where Fe, Fi, I don’t wanna die Sonny gone to heaven, left me behind Me and mine for Auld Lang Syne Will all be brought to mind Bob got born in a folding bed He wasn’t wearing nothin’ but the hat on his head Had a fiddle in his hand till the day he dropped dead He was half way up the stairs Had a great big grin like a chimpanzee Well he drunk till he couldn’t see his own four feet Had one in the grave and one on the beat And he died in a rocking chair Fe, Fi, I don’t wanna die Sonny gone to heaven, left me behind Me and mine for Auld Lang Syne Will all be brought to mind Woah woah woah, woe is me Lord, Lord, Lord, I just can’t see Why oh why, why oh why I just can’t seem to drink them off my mind Joey woke up in the morning sun He couldn’t recollect where he’d come from High heel shoes and a red dress on And half way up the stairs Mama come runnin’ with her curlers on ‘Good God almighty what’ve I ever done? Y’got shit on your shoes and your wig on wrong And you look like you don’t care.’ Fe, Fi, I don’t wanna die Sonny gone to heaven, left me behind Me and mine for Auld Lang Syne Will all be brought to mind Woah woah woah, woe is me Lord, Lord, Lord, I just can’t see Why oh why, why oh why I just can’t seem to drink them off my mind Fe, Fi, I don’t wanna die Sonny gone to heaven, left me behind Me and mine for Auld Lang Syne Will all be brought to mind
