    When Mom and Papa first laid eyes
    On me right from the start
    They knew right away a lover was born
    I'd be breakin' lovers' hearts
    (Breakin' lovers' hearts)

    At a very early age, yeah, I began to show sign
    That a stone cold lover was born
    Lord, I'm gonna let it shine, yeah
    (I'm gonna let it shine, yeah)

    Girl, if I can't love you
    A reel can make gumbo
    A drunken man don't stumble
    A seein'-eye dog can learn to lead the blind

    A bee don't deal in honey
    The Beatles ain't got no money
    And watermelons grow on a grapevine

    One day my papa told me
    'Son, sit down, I gotta talk to you
    Said, don't believe I can't understand
    I've been through the same thing too?

    Said, ?You think you're pretty hot stuff
    And you dig every girl you see
    But listen, son, settle for one
    It'll save a lotta misery in the long run?

    If that don't get it, sonny
    There ain't no corpse in the dawn
    There ain't no birds in a home
    And you can get black from a turnip
    If you squeeze and squeeze

    Tears don't go with the blues
    Chicken wear high-heeled shoes
    And Old McDonald's farm didn't have no trees

    I'm gonna take my papa's advice
    Though it's gonna be hard to do
    I'm gonna stop tryin' to prove a point
    I'm gonna give myself to you, girl

    If I fear you, baby
    Ain't no leaps in a frog
    There ain't no bumps on a log
    And you can get black from a turnip
    If you squeeze and squeeze

    A new cow don't give milk
    A egg don't got no yolk
    And I'd pull side of pole right out of tree, yeah
