I don’t remember the night
We brought you into this life
It’s no concern to you
Little boy in the baby blue
Now in the summer
Now in the light
What can I do
To make things right?

Met her again
after all these years
My high school girl
And we shared a couple beers
And fell into each other
A familiar fall
Entangled our lives
Once and for all

Oh god, oh god
Tell me what is right
Every time I think I know
I lose it in the headlights
So what we do around here
Is shoot the shit and drink beer
Wake up and off I go
But I still don’t know

I’ll tell ya what, little boy
I love this town
‘Want you to grow up here
With love all around
I can’t speak for your mother
And all her goals
We woke up from each other
Everybody saw

She’s got her twelve
And I’ve got my ten
But whatever you count to
It all comes back to you
So what do I do
in the crucial hour?
admit I am weak
seek help from a higher power


As the months turn into years
As the years turn into decades
You and me and my father before me
There’s only so many hours in a day
I pick a song for you
And with this song I’ll pray

Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
