When The Fertilizer Hits The Ventilator
Lyrics
FERTILIZER
Mark Patterson © 2018

Well I was nobody's first choice
Didn't have the best voice
Never made varsity
My truck was an embarrassment
Rolling down the pavement
Smoking like a factory
She was heartbroken soft spoken
Even through the tears brother she was still smokin' hot
Like a lot of us she just had a blind spot

I told her when the fertilizer hits the ventilator baby
And there ain't no place to hide
Forget the fakers, the fools and the takers
They're just along for the ride
Ain't a long ball hitter but I've never been a quitter
Just running on love and pride
When things look black I've got your back
Baby I'll be right by your side

I may be a blind fool
Or maybe I'm old school
But loyalty's a thing of the past
Over time we've gotten distant
But I made a commitment
And I'm still holding fast
In my plain spoken no jokin' way
I want to show her that my promise is unbroken still
Ain't giving up on us I've got vows to fulfil

'Cause when the fertilizer hits the ventilator baby
And there ain't no place to hide
Long gone are the fakers the fools and the takers
But I'm still along for the ride
Ain't a long ball hitter but I've never been a quitter
Just running on love and pride
When things look black I've got your back
Baby I'm still right by your side

Yeah when the fertilizer hits the ventilator baby
There ain't no place to hide
Long gone are the fakers the fools and the takers
They were just along for the ride
Ain't a long ball hitter but I've never been a quitter
Just running on love and pride
When things look black I've got your back
Baby I'm still right by your side
Yeah baby I'm still right by your side
You know it
