lyrics

LITTLE BROTHER
Lyrics by Joel Eckels


Your brother don’t know
No, the others don’t know
You tried to tell ‘em but you couldn’t
You’re here with me now
And nobody’s around
Doing all of the things that we shouldn’t

Chorus:
I don’t care what they say,
Sister, won’t you stay
Don’t listen to your little brother
I don’t care what they say
Sister, won’t you stay
He’s been getting his way with my lover

Never did nothing wrong
‘Cept put it in a song
Nobody gave us the information
Whatcha gonna do now?
Just tune it all out
Like changing the radio station
Oh no, never saw it coming
You left me in the dark where they’d rather keep me
Never saw it coming
Girl, you shouldn’t have to leave

CHORUS

Never saw it coming
No, I never saw it coming
