​Skateboard

This song is by Joe Scruggs and appears on the album Deep In The Jungle (1987).

I got out my piggy bank this morning
I took out all the dollars and the dimes
'Cause it was my mommy's birthday
So I jumped on my bike
Headed down to the store
To buy her something she might like

Now my brother had suggested some perfume
And my sister said that flowers were always right
But I wanted something more
Something mom could really enjoy
Something to make her say, "Gee!
I just can't believe it's for me!"

So I got mom a skateboard for her birthday
'Cause I don't think mom has enough toys
And it's something that she'll like
I can tow her behind my bike
Show her all the tricks I can do
Other moms are gonna want one too
And I think that you can occur
It is the perfect gift for her

Well, it's party time and mom opens up her present
And I can see it in her eyes that she's surprised
And sure enough, she said, "Gee!
I can't believe it's for me!"
Then she thinks for a minute or two
And says, "Just what does it do?"

And I said, "Mom, it's a skateboard for your birthday
And you and I will have so much fun
'Cause I'll teach you the tricks I do
And where the fastest hills are too
How to ride it on all fours
We can race each other to the store
And I think that you can see
It is exactly what you need"

Now you know you've got to give mom a lot of credit
Because she never complains about the pain
And if she's not moving too fast
Well, it's just because of the cast
Her body's been misaligned
But it hasn't affected her mind

So she got out some nails and a hammer
And she nailed that skateboard to the garbage can
And when it's garbage day
She wheels the trashcan down the driveway
And she tells all of her friends
That out garbage can can hang ten

And I got mom trashcan wheels for her birthday
Although that's not what I set out to do
I wanted to get her a toy
Something that she could enjoy
Something to make her say, "Gee!
I just can't believe it's for me!"
Yeah, for Christmas, I'm gonna be slick
I'm gonna buy her a pogo stick
Yeah, for Christmas, I'm gonna be slick
I'm gonna buy her a pogo stick!
