Iím exasperated and irritated
Whenever I think of you.
You just donít know how it bugs me
When you do the things you do.
That whining voice just works my nerves
Whenever I hear you say,
ďI hope youíve got some free time for me
Cause I need your help today.Ē
You never seem to understand
A thing thatís going on.
Maybe you ought to get out of here
And leave the rest of us alone.
I have very little patience
With someone the likes of you.
You take up my time; you ruin my day,
And youíll be here tomorrow, too.
The Bible says I must do unto others
As I would have them do unto me.
It just seems that in certain cases,
There should be exceptions. You see?
I guess I canít go excusing myself
For not doing whatís right to do.
Iíll pray about it and ask for strength
To keep from hurting you.
Maybe youíre here to teach me patience,
And how to be understanding.
If thatís the case Iíve missed the point.
I just see you as demanding.
Lord please let me see this person
Through eyes with a different view.
Let me show love and caring
The way you want me to.
Cause when I get to heaven I donít want the Lord to say
"Tell me, why on earth did you treat my child this way.Ē
Cause then Iíll know once again,
You just ruined another day.
