I went to see my doctor, went to see him the other day.
He said boy ???.change the way you?re livin?
I said NO CAN DO.
He said the life I was leadin, gonna be the end of you..

I seen me a preacher man, on the street just the other day
He said boy ???change the way you?re livin.
I said NO CAN DO
He said the life I was leadin; gonna make a devil out of you.


I stood in front of a judgment man, and he gave me 90 days.
He said boy???.change the way you?re livin?.
This time I say YESS SIREE.
He said you come back down here boy I?ll hang you from the nearest tree.

I seen me a funeral man on the street just the other day.
He said boy (I hear if you don?t) change the way you?re livin
You?re gonna be visiting me.
I told that funeral man just to turn around there ain?t nothing here to see.
