All I Own

Nothing ever works out for me
and I don’t know why it should
Sister says I’m lazy
and Dad says I’m no good
I’m no good.

I earned diplomas for my wall
and an office all my own
Sister’s husband bought her a horse
and a nice suburban home
Suburban home.

Now we both are growing old
Sister’s husband hit the road
my office moved to Mexico
diplomas are all I own
All I own.
