What's this I hear going all around town?
The people are sayin' you gonna put the kid down
Lordy, what your doing?
You call it what you want,
I call it messin' with the kid.

You told me you loved me
You told me a lie,
I love you woman till the day I die
Lordy, what you doin
You can call it what you want
I call it messin' with the kid

You took the kids' car and drove all around town
Tellin' everybody you're gonna put me down,
Lordy, what you doing
Call it what you want
I call it meson' with the kid

Messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Lordy what you doing
You call it what you want,
I call it messin' with the kid

You told me you love me
You told me a lie
I love you woman till the day I die

Took my car and drove all around town,
Tellin' everybody you gonna put me down
Lordy what you doing,
I call it messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Messin with the kid
Messin' with the kid
Messin' with the kid
