about

This is the first song I wrote for 'Songwriters in the Round' -- the theme was 'childhood photographs' -- and I was deathly afraid that one of the other songwriters would come up with the same take on the theme that I did. I've learned not to worry about that so much.

lyrics

Hey, darling, won't you please put down that old Necronomicon?
I've been thinking of back when
You were a pretty child of ten.
Here's a picture of you drawing pentagrams upon the lawn --
It's amazing how you've grown since that day.

Here you are on the night you sacrificed your first goat.
It was bleating awful loud.
You know you made me awful proud
When you took your silver knife and you cut its little throat;
It's amazing how you've grown since that day.

Ah, and here's a picture from the day you became old Satan's bride.
There you are, all dressed in black,
Satan's nervous in the back.
You were such a lovely couple, and your ma and me both cried.
It's amazing how you've grown since that day.

Honey, thanks for looking through this album with me today,
All the memories within,
Nicely bound in human skin.
You were a handful, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
No, I wouldn't have it any other way.
No, I wouldn't have you any other way.
