    Now friend if you'll just listen to me you'll get some good hard earned advice
    I don't aim to meddle in your business I'm just tryin' to save you an awful price

    Now you see these teeth that I ain't got and these knots on my bald head
    I'll guarantee you boys I didn't get them there lyin' at home in the bed
    Now take the smart aleck in any town of him folks want no part
    He acts like his head was only made to hold his ears apart
    Now he might like what I'm bout to say and my words might make him sore
    But I'm just tryin' to be helpful cause I've been down that road before

    To bully folks and play mean tricks was once my pride and joy
    Till one day I was toted home and mama didn't know her little boy
    My head was swelled up so doggone big I couldn't get it through my front door
    Now I ain't just talkin' to hear myself cause I've been down that road before

    A little fellow about my size got tired of being pushed about
    So he went to work and when he got through he'd knocked every one of my teeth out
    One time too many I'd rubbed him wrong and he evened up the score
    Now that's what happens when you get too big for your britches

    And I've been down that road before
    Now when you get to thinkin' you're really smart
    There's always somebody smarter than you

    And no matter how much you boast and brag you can still learn a thing or two
    Go get you some treatments just like I've had and you won't hanker for more
    I really learned the meaning of living and loving I've been down that road before
    Now the man that walks this rocky road usually gets just what he deserves

    Cause he's just a helpless servant to a master that he serves
    Now I've learned to slow my temper down and not to pick no scraps no more
    Boys it's a lot easier on the head and eyes I've been down that road before
