You got the right string baby but the wrong yo-yo
Somebody's knockin' on your door
I passed this morning by the hardware store
Bought a brand new string for my yo-yo
Walked down the doctors' get the string put on
He made mistake, put the string on wrong
No need for knockin' on nobody's door
Bought the right string baby for the wrong yo-yo

Mama told me and Papa did too
Some of these women are going to be the death of you
Better find out wait till you crave
Some of these women'll take you to our grave
When you see me coming put your man outdoors
I ain't no stranger, I've been here before
No need for knockin' on nobody's door
I got the right string baby but the wrong yo-yo

Right string baby but the wrong yo-yo
Somebody's knockin' on your door
I passed this morning by the hardware store
Bought a brand new string for my yo-yo
Walked down the doctors' get the string put on
He made a mistake, put the string on wrong
No need for knockin' on nobody's door
I got the right string baby but the wrong yo-yo
