Russell's chasing after Moses
with an old shotgun
and Becky
can't you choose the one you love?
Terry's not an honest man
he's stealing from the trucks at work

and Becky, please
go home
you been sleeping on the couch for days
drinking all the beer and saying
you ain't got no reason

you ain't got no reason to go home

Sister Liz is out there telling tales
she's at Grandma's and she's got her
on the telephone, calling Russell, saying
"Russell, go and get your gun
you won't believe what our sweet little Becky has gone and done"

oh, Becky, please
go home
you been sleeping on the couch for days
drinking all the beer and saying
Rusty's kicked Dilaudids
he's calling on the phone and saying,
"Man, I need my Becky
man, I need my Becky
man, I need my sweet Becky at home"
