You know those folks who gang up on you sometimes? They're all sure you need a scolding ?
Well, here's your response to them.

THANKS FOR THE SHOVE !

Thanks for the shove - to the level above.
I don't have to fret about you.
You're mean enough to be selfish and tough,
and, just like a fox you'll get through.

But I'll tell you this, one day you'll get the kiss,
when you find out how bitter the fruit.
Your kind has a fist, and Destiny's twist,
is that one day they'll give you the boot !
Chorus
Who's is the blame ? Who feels the shame ?
Which way will you go in that day ?
You'll be feelin' drained, so wherever you've aimed
through the years will determine which way.
Will it be up or down, or another trip round.
When you get your shove ?

Thanks for release. I'm feelin' peace.
Yours is a strange sort of love.
Though I feel a bit sad, I'm not even mad.
I'm just sayin' thanks for the shove.

So I'll try to do - a favor for you,
when you're empty, and longin' for love;
when you're lost and alone, and feelin' like stone,
I'll reach down and give you a shove !
Chorus
Who's is the blame ? Who feels the shame ?
Which way will you go in that day ?
You'll be feelin' drained, so wherever you've aimed
through the years will determine which way.
Will it be up or down, or another trip round.
When you get your shove ?
