When you were a kidAnd you wanted a dollYou got it!Don’t ask how you did,But when you were a kidAnd you wanted a dollYou got it!You carefully laid out a plan,When you were a kid’twas a doll . . .And now it’s a man!I’m gonna get em!I’m gonna get em!Instead of givin’ upAn’ throwin’ in the towelI’m gonna keep on fightin’Fair or fowlUntil I get em!I’m gonna em!I’m gonna wear my jewelsAn’ my ermine wrapAn’ if I have to drop my shoulder strapI’m gonna get em!I’m gonna em!An’ when I’ve got himWhere I think he otta be . . .I’m gonna love em, love emMy mission in life will be to love emUntil he loves me!I’m gonna get em!Hmm, I’m gonna get em!I’ll back him in a corner’till he squirms an’ twistsAn’ if I must put handcuffsOn his wristsI’m gonna get em!I’m gonna get em!He’ll know the facts of lifeAn’ when he understandsI’ll put a shotgun in my father’s handsAn’ that’ll get em!I’m gonna em!An’ when I’ve got himWhere I think he otta be . . .I’m gonna hug em, hug emI’ll hug em and if I have to slug emHe’s gonna love, he’s gonna loveHe’s gonna love me!
