    (Ry Cooder)

    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    'Cause you treat her so mean and she's only sweet sixteen

    It was late last Friday evening, when everything was still
    I heard somebody calling my name outside my window sill
    I got up and I looked outside strainin' my eyes to see
    And my heart went wild when I realized just who was calling me

    I hollered
    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    'Cause you treat her so mean and she's only sweet sixteen

    Now, her eyes were blazing up at me
    Her hair was black as night
    And her naked skin shone like gold
    Out in the pale moonlight
    She took my hand and she pulled me down
    Where the grass had grown up tall
    The she moved her body all around
    Just like a cannon ball

    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    Hey, mama, don't you treat your daughter mean
    'Cause you treat her so mean and she's only sweet sixteen

    Yonder comes your mama, girl, 'cross the field
    Runnin' and a-shakin' like an automobile
    Daddy's got a shotgun in his hand
    They just don't understand
    The first time I seen that sweet girl
    She was runnin' home from Sunday school
    And the next time I seen that sweet little girl
    Was when she broke her mama's rule
    But the last time I seen that sweet little girl
    She was filled with a strange desire
    Rollin' and tumblin' out on the cold wet ground
    Her skin burnin' up just like a cane fire
    She called my name a thousand ways
    The tears came streaming down her face
    But just when I was 'bout to blow my stack
    Her daddy came a-creepin' and a-crawlin' up behind
    And he shot me in the back
