Ev'ry time I'm walking all down the street
Some pretty mama start breaking down on me.
Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
Gonna make you lose your mind.

You Saturday night women, now, you just ape and clown,
You don't do nothing but tear my reputation down.
Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
Yeah, it's gonna make you lose your mind.

I love my baby ninety nine degrees,
But that mama got a pistol, laid it down on me.
Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
Yeah, gonna make you lose your mind.

Ev'ry time I'm walking all down the street
Some pretty woman start breaking down on me.
Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust your brains out, baby,
Gonna make you lose your mind.

    Breaking down could mean white lining. I would suggest the singer is trying to get his girl to give up the habit, as it will surely bust your brains out and make you lose your mind, as evidenced by her threatening him with a firearm in the third verse. I believe Robert Johnson performed this number under the title "Stop Breaking Down Blues". Another possibility is that breaking down is an attempt to coerce the singer into drug use. Of course I could have said this in fewer words but you appear to labour under the misapprehension that the longer the explanation, the more likely it is to be "awesome" Personally I'd change that "awful".
