And he didn't leave much to ma and me,
Just this ol' guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
Now I don't blame him 'cause he run and hid,
But the meanest thing that he ever did
Was before he left, he went and named me 'Sue'.

"You shouldn't name a boy 'Cyril' or 'Percy', because the other boys will want to punch him repeatedly in the mouth, and I can't say as I blame them.
