lyrics

I found a critter in my backyard
I named him Abraham after the things that you forgot
Abraham knows that I miss you loads
When I feed him leftovers he nibbles at my clothes

Mama can we keep him?
Mama can we take him home?
Mama don't be mistaken
He would never break a bone
And he gets me man, you can call me stoned all you want

When father's asleep
I sneak Abraham the meat
That no one at dinner wanted to eat

I know he'll protect me
From assholes like you
He's growing real strong with all his new healthy food

Mama can we keep him?
Mama can we take him home?
Mama don't be mistaken
He would never break a bone
And he gets me man, you can call me stoned

One day I will awake to find he's run away
And I'll turn back into your stray friend
That you kick till the end
And I'm starving

I found a critter in my backyard
I named him Abraham after the things that you forgot
He fetches the mail that you write me when you're sad
Is he slobbering all over it, or do you miss me that badly?

Mama can we keep Abraham?
Mama can we take him home?
Mama don't be mistaken
He won't soil our abode
And he gets me man, you can call me stoned
