Where you goin'
With your shoes undone
Throwin' rocks
Makin' fun of everyone
Little man
You'll make a big mistake
Unless you change your way

Stayin' out late
Every night
Chasin' after streetcars
And getting' into fights
Yeah
Son you're bound
To break your mama's heart
Unless you change your way

All the teachers
At the school there
They know you well
'Cause you're always
The worst one
You're always
Playin' the fool
I can tell
What's the matter
With you little guy

Don't you know
Take my advice
Before you do
Somethin' bad
You'd better
Think about it twice
You're sure to end up
On the shady side
Unless you
Change
Your
Way
