Whatever happened to my college belle
When did she turn into the wife from hell
Hey little cringemaker what are we coming to
My little cringemaker what have they done to you

In the beginning we rode high on the hog
Down in the kitchen now it's dog eat dog
Oh little cringemaker up on the second floor
Hey little cringemaker who locked the bedroom door

Sweet little cringemaker

And every time I go to make my play
She rolls mighty boulders in my way

Say little cringemaker it's such a bumpy ride
Hey little cringemaker thought you were on my side

And every time I get to have my say
She just laughs and looks the other way
Oh little cringemaker this time you hurt my pride
My little cringemaker where am I gonna hide?

Sweet little cringemaker

Nobody told us when we started out
Just what this life is really all about
Sometimes I wonder and you do too
If I could do it all over would I
Still do it all over you

Sweet little cringemaker

She calls me daddy and I just go numb
Down in the bottom where the love comes from
Oh little cringemaker what happened on the way
My little cringemaker to where we are today

I try to figure but I'm way too dumb
How we got here from where we started from
Oh little cringemaker I guess we always knew
My little cringemaker what we would turn into

Sweet little cringemaker
