At home, drawing pictures of mountain tops With him on top lemon yellow sun, arms raised in a V And the dead lay in pools of maroon below Daddy didn’t give attention Oh, to the fact that mommy didn’t care King jeremy the wicked…oh, ruled his world . . . Jeremy spoke in class today . . . (2x) Clearly I remember pickin on the boy Seemed a harmless little fuck Ooh, but we unleashed a lion . . . Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess ladys breast . . . How can I forget? And he hit me with a surprise left My jaw left hurtin…ooh, dropped wide open Just like the day…oh, like the day I heard Daddy didn’t give affection, no . . . And the boy was something that mommy wouldn’t wear King jeremy the wicked . . . oh, ruled his world Jeremy spoke in class today . . .
