[Cry, Cry, Cry]

It’s bad you know
When you hair don’t curl
And they try to flip out on you
I had one like that

When I heard her feet
When they hit that bridge
That’s when I told her

I’m goin’ with you babe
I’m goin’ with you baby
I’m goin’ with you babe
I’m goin’ with you baby
I don’t care where you go

She said what
[What!]
I told her again Jon
[What!]

I’m goin’ with you babe
I’m goin’ with you baby
I’m goin’ with you babe
I’m goin’ with you baby
I don’t care where you go

Look out Jon

I’m Goin’
I’m Goin’
I don’t care where you go

Then I told her this way
I’d rather be dead
I’d rather be dead
I’d rather be dead
And six feet in the ground

She asked me why?

[What!]
Yeah
I just told her
[What!]
I just told her
Some other man
Some other man
Some other man
Some other man
Is always hanging around

Look out Jon

Hey!

I’m goin’
I’m goin’
[I’m goin’]
I don’t care where you go
