See him ridin' around with his pickup truck
And a rebel flag in the back
He's got a wad of chew stuck in his mouth
And a shotgun in the rack

He's gonna head on down to the Forrest Inn
Where's gonna pick another fight
Like he did last week and the week before
And like he does every Saturday night

'Cause he's downright and dangerous
Downright and dangerous
So I'm telling you son
You better watch your back
'Cause the man don't cut no slack
He's downright and dangerous

He's got a woman at home tired of waiting alone
She's got her own little plan of attack
She's doing 75 down Rodeo in a redneck Cadillac
When she gets into town she's gonna run him down

'Cause he ain't that tough to her
When she walks through the door
They're gonna hit the floor and the rest will be

'Cause she's downright and dangerous
Downright and dangerous
So I'm telling you son
You better watch your back
'Cause the girl don't cut no slack
She's downright and dangerous

Downright and dangerous
Dangerous

Someone grab the phone dial 9-1-1
'Cause they're tearing up the place
I think she's gotta gun everybody run
Get down and cover your face

'Cause they're downright and dangerous
Downright and dangerous
So I'm telling you son you better watch your mouth
He's downright and dangerous
