As a young boy my mama used to make me walk the line But even then as now women were a weakness of mine In grade school I was a mess Pullin' up some little girl's dress
Teacher would send me home from school what a witch! Mama'd say "Bad boy, go get me that switch"
Chorus: Mama you cant' give me no whippin' Just for stayin' out all night Mama you can't give me no whippin' I'm old enough to know wrong from right Mama you can't turn me over your knee It's embarrassing to a man like me Mamma I think I've got something that the girls like Mama I think I might have something that the girls like
I guess I was 'bout thirteen when this feeling came over me I started learnin' how to talk the girls out of their virginity Sneak 'em out into the light of the moon Sneak 'em up into my bedroom Mama'd catch us without a stitch and say "Bad boy now get me that switch"
I remember celebratin' my eighteenth birthday I headed out into the evening and I heard Mama say "Boy don't cha be late" I rolled in about 4 AM Didn't know where I was or were I'd been There was Mama with a belt in her hand And I said "Hey! Mama your boy's a man!!"
