Toddler with a Slingshot

Chords

 

You pay me to exaggerate, I think I've done enough
Of turning bummers into heartaches and crushes into love
Sometimes our lives are mild, our stories: just okay
I'll set your expectations in the middle when I say: "Hell yep"

A hell yep

And knock me down a peg when I wanna be a big shot
I'm just a toddler with a slingshot

For example:
I got cornered by a salesman at a farmers market booth
Selling cheap ceramic bowls meant for dogs to eat their food
I haggle like a master, I showed them how I do
I didn't want one, but I got a deal for two

Hell yep
I don't have a regret
Or a dog

Knock me down a peg when I wanna be a big shot
I'm just a toddler with a slingshot

Don't have the strength
Don't have the aim
I'm building up my motor skills and everything's a game
You say I'm harmless (you're probably right)
But nothing is more trouble than a toddler going quiet
Keep an eye on me, keep your eye, keep your eye on me

... and knock me down a peg when I wanna be a big shot
I'm just a toddler with a slingshot

I asked for half your candy bar, you raised it in the air
And split it down the middle, made a perfect little pair
You smiled like a sweetheart, my hand extended out
You winked at me and popped both of the pieces in your mouth

Hell nope
That one's a hell nope… no mercy with a Hershey ‘fore she
Knocked me down a peg when I wanna be a big shot
I'm just a toddler with a slingshot

Don't have the strength
Don't have the aim
I'm building my-my-motor skills and everything's a game
You say I'm harmless (so did Goliath)
But nothing is more trouble than a toddler going quiet
Keep an eye on me, Keep your eye, keep your eye
And watch me well
Or I'll raise a little hell
... a hell yep

They asked me for a catchphrase
I didn't miss a step
If their story's kind of boring
you can tell 'em: "Hell Yep"
Hell Yep!

Knock me down a peg when I wanna be a big shot
And I will kick it up the next notch

And if I work, put in the labor,
Blood, sweat, call in every favor
Eat my veggies, say my prayers,
Push myself to be a danger…

... I'll be a preteen with a Taser
