    All day long I felt like
    Smashing my face in a clear glass window.
    But instead, I went out
    And smashed up a phone box round the corner.

    I never had a chance to choose my own parents,
    I’d never know why I should be stuck with mine.
    Mommy’s always trying not to eat
    And daddy’s always smelling like he’s pickled in booze.

    I never had a chance to choose my own name,
    I’d never know why I should be stuck with mine.
    Mommy’s always talkin’ ’bout family pride
    And daddy’s always hiding ’bout his week-end rides.

    All day long I felt like
    Smashing my face in a clear glass window.
    But instead, I went out
    And smashed up a station wagon round the block.

    I looked at the mirror and told myself,
    I’m glad I still don’t look like them at least.
    Mommy’s like a film star in a distorted mirror,
    Daddy’s like a guy who lost his stomach in the war.

    I went to shake hands with the president in miami,
    I went to a rock show to see mick jagger.
    And you’d never believe it, surprise to my life,
    They had paint on their faces just like mommy’s.

    Am I going crazy or is it just you, daddy?
    Am I going nuts or is it just you, mommy?
    Am I plain gone or is it the world?
    Daddy, I’d rather have you dead than crazy.

    Trying to talk to them is like eating tv dinner when you’re angry,
    Trying to get their love is like watching ice cream ad when you’re hungry.
    They gave me a watch that’s guaranteed not to break
    But my mommy and daddy broke up last fall.

    Am I going crazy or is it just you, daddy?
    Am I going nuts or is it just you, mommy?
    Am I plain gone or is it the world?
    Mommy, I’d rather have you dead than crazy.

    All day long I felt like
    Smashing my face in a clear glass window.
    But instead, I went out
    And smashed up a church yard round the corner.

    APPROXIMATELY INFINITE UNIVERSE
    Approximately Infinite Universe is a double album by Yoko Ono, released in early 1973. It represents a departure from the experimental avant garde rock of her first two albums towards a more conventional pop/rock sound, while also dabbling in feminist rock. It peaked at #193 in the United States. The 1997 CD re-issue on Rykodisc added two acoustic demos of songs from this era that were later released on 1981's Season of Glass.

    Released by: Apple
    Release date: Jan 8, 1973
