Lyrics

My mom and dad had a great big plan To whisk us away from the rural decay To the city we’d go where our dreams can grow Packed my toys in a van and away we ran I do the best I can from the freezer to the fryin’ pan I do the best I can from the freezer to the fryin’ pan I don’t have much to say in what’s comin’ my way I do my best to behave and pray it turns out okay I don’t understand mom and dad’s big plan But we’re on our way as our town slips away I do the best I can from the freezer to the fryin’ pan I do the best I can from the freezer to the fryin’ pan Bridge: Diners here, gas stations there, we could stop anywhere Keepin’ the beat with my feet on the back of dad’s seat Solo Now we’re on the coast this place is really the most Unpacked my odds and ends, and I made me some friends So we think we’ll stay ‘cause things are going our way Dad’s in a rock ‘n’ roll band, and mamma’s workin’ for the man I do the best I can, dad’s in a rockin’ roll band I do the best I can, mamma’s workin’ for the man Mamma’s workin’, mamma’s workin’ Mamma’s workin’, mamma’s workin’
