about

Written waiting in line at the DMV upon moving to Charlottesville in 2005. It was a long line.

lyrics

Don't know no Betsy, don't know no Pete
Don't know what importance to you they keep
If you wanna beg to somebody, my baby, honey
Make it heavens to me

Go on swearin' and cursin' a storm
Ain't no one wanna listen to your carryin' on
With a mouth like that, you'd better check your heat
Slap the lips right off you in a hot heartbeat
Oh, heavens to me

Keep your hands off my sides and feet off of mine
Steer clear of me, dear, I'm in no mood tonight
After what you've done be glad you've a bed
And be glad on that neck still sits your big head
Oh, heavens to me

Don't know no Betsy, don't know no Pete
Don't know what importance to you they keep
If you wanna beg to somebody, my baby, honey
Make it heavens to me

Don't know whose sake you're going on about
It's your own tanned hide you've gotta worry for now
So watch that tone when you come on home
You're a dog in this house, ain't got no bone
Oh, heavens to me

Done told you once, done told you twice
Next time I ask, it won't be so nice
If you do right, won't be nothin' wrong
But it seems for this world you won't be long
If you're gonna beg to somebody, my baby, honey
Make it heavens to me

Don't know no Betsy, don't know no Pete
Don't know what importance to you they keep
If you wanna beg to somebody, my baby, honey
Make it heavens to me
