lyrics

Way back in Rockland County
I spent my allowance on a sugary bounty
In a store called "Gerkens" about two miles away
The whole damn journey would take a half day
Because the trek was all uphill
But it was yet more difficult still
Because there was no road that went directly there
And we'd cut through neighbors' yards like totally scared

And the bastards would scream:
Get out of my yard! Get out of my yard!
Get out of my yard! Get out of my yard!
Get out of my yard!
All for a stupid baseball card

Sometimes they got so crazy
How angry they'd get would really amaze me
And I only covered a mile of ground
Then I'd stop in my tracks because I'd hear that sound
Of a growling, big, black hound
I didn't dare hide because I was already found
And the dog would chase me the whole rest of the way
That's why I still hate dogs today

And the bastards would scream:
Get out of my yard! Get out of my yard!
Get out of my yard! Get out of my yard!
Get out of my yard!
All for a stupid baseball card
