(with figure2:)
in the beginning we rode high on the hog

sweet little cringemaker
my little cringemaker thought you were on my side
sweet little cringemaker

(with fig2)

SOLO: over figure 1, 4 times

(with fig2)
she calls me 'daddy' and i just go numb
down in the bottom where the love comes from

(with fig1)
oh little cringemaker what happened on the way
sweet little cringemaker
my little cringemaker to where we are today
sweet little cringemaker

(with fig2)
i try to figure, but im way too dumb
how we got here from where we started from

(with fig1)
oh little cringemaker, i guess we always knew
sweet little cringemaker
my little cringemaker who we would turn into
sweet little cringemaker

repeat figure3 once, then figure 1 until fade

sweet little cringemaker....
