In the days of my youth
I was told what it means to be a man
Now i've reached the age I
've tried to do all those things the best i can.
No matter how i try I find my way into the same old jam.
*good times bad times
You know i had my share;
When my woman left home
For a brown eyed man
Well i still don't seem to care.
Sixteen: i fell in love
With a girl as sweet as could be
Only took a couple of days
Till she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine
And love me till the end,
But when i whispered in her ear I lost another friend, oooh.
I know what it means to be alone,
I sure do wish i was at home.
I don't care what the neighbors say,
I'm gonna love you each and every day.
You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't ever gonna part
