Double-Double

Oh, you get double              presence in 2 houses

For the holidays                    is counted as 10, 11 a week

New faces, new places
New beds, new pets
Nothing is the same
It's like they never met

You from the South Bronx                    But Mom and Dad arguing
It ain’t the 70’s, you ain’t                       can’t agree on
coughing up smoke in your house      anything other than ball

And it seems you                     pick sides to please your parents, but

Still live like royalty,               “He likes Mom more”
after all                                      "He’s a momma’s boy"

We both have two beams of support
The question is do yours show up on the court?
