Well look out mama your little girl she has changedShe cut her baby curlsAnd she’s got her act rearrangedLook out daddy what she needs nowShe can’t find at homeOh rickie wants a man of herShe wants a man of herRickie wants a man of her ownMama says her little girl won’t talk to her anymoreShe just goes in her room, turns on the radio and shutsThe doorShe’s got her own bathroom, tv, stereo, extension phoneOh, but mama, rickie wants a man of herShe wants a man of herRickie wants a man of her ownWell daddy says when he drop her off friday night at theGymShe slides way down in the front seatSo the kids won’t see her with himShe don’t do no workShe won’t tell nobody when she’s coming homeAnd she makes poor daddy wait down on the cornerAt midnight all aloneWell daddy’s pullin’ out his hairHe says that girl ain’t got no directionShe don’t care to bring her boyfriends homeTo pass daddy’s inspectionNow we’re left peeking through the curtainsEverytime that we hear a horn blowWell I guess rickie wants a man of her ownMama says: son, talk to her, she’ll listen to youYeah, she listens real nice and she does what she wantsTo doWell daddy says: she wears her jeans so tightWell, you change ’em or you’re staying homeah, but daddy, rickie wants a manOf herShe wants a man of herRickie wants a man of her ownShe’s almost grownRickie wants a man of herShe wants a man of herRickie wants a man of her own
