lyrics

Jenny Broke Down

Jenny broke down in the barroom
She was crying all night
Bobby won big on the foosball
He was there in the light

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

Jenny fell down on the hard floor
Screaming his name
Bobby sat glued to the pinball
He had just won five games

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

And they all gathered 'round
Just to hear that primal sound
Ya , they all need to see
Someone winning at something

Bobby got into a bar fight
With a cop in plain clothes
Kitty was born in the lot weeds
Sunburn tatoo on her toes

Kitty grew strong like a cactus
in a small desert town
Kitty found out about freedom
on a discount greyhound

"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."

and they all gathered round
just to hear that primal sound
Ya, they all all need to see
someone winning at something

(spoken part)

She said,"Oh, I don't know if I can take it anymore."
