I woulda thanked you if it didn’t hurt so bad
Cause I got new shoes and woman they ain’t made a glass
Foot stompin, kickin up dust and trouble
Bang your soles to the floor if ya hear me my brothers
Well alright it’s time, shower, shave and shine
Fresh denim, belt leather and these blues shoes tied
Kick the door, lock the bolt, down the stairs and fly
Whoo-eee, look at the scene, it’s good to be alive

2nd Verse:
I bought a shotgun yesterday and pawned the ring
I’m gonna blow up, blow up all them spots I sing
And I’ll be tusslin, burnin up the carpet with hussies
Corn-fed, you damn straight we goin make a ruckus
Rusty’s records always make for easy wreckin
Put the needle to the groove for your listenin pleasure
Turn it up, bump it loud, and bang that honey sound
From the princess to the pauper to the hind to the cow

3rd Verse:
Woke up this morning, found your bodyprint on my bed
Heard some children, ha, I heard them whisperin
Crept the kitchen, ooh girl what did I see?
Hands in the cookie jar, you know that ain’t too cool with me
Looks like daddy caught momma out on a run
You best keep runnin, cause baby there will surely be blood
Lay low fo sho, and run right out the door
I’m goin downtown and Daddy’s gonna break a horse
It ain’t no secret and I ain’t been tellin no lies
but I got new shoes and I’m goin walk my life alive
