You know I never really thought some things would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me

I went down in Mississippi, I asked Mister Charlie about my roots
He said, "Turn around, bend over, boy, they're right here in my boots"
You know I never thought a thing like that would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me

I asked a policeman the time, he swung and crowned me with his stock
I managed to walk away so glad it weren't twelve o'clock
You know I never thought a thing like that would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me

My girl friend's datin' this here guy who's goin' out with some man's wife
I lost my girl, the wife her husband, the guy he lost his life
You know I never thought a thing like that would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me

I used to have a Ford Torino and at that time I had a chick
She used to get her kicks just askin' me to flick my Bic
You know I never thought a thing like that would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me

My grandpa drove a horse and buggy but my father used the train
I worked and bought a Cadillac but my son, he drives a plane
You know I never thought a thing like that would ever really come to be
'Cause I don't bother nobody and don't nobody bother me
