Some people say that I'm a bad guy
They may be right, they may be wrong
But it's not as if I don't try
I just mess up and I go wrong

But I can change, I can change
I can learn to keep my promises, I swear it
Open up my heart and I will tear it
Any minute now, I swear, I'll share it

Oh it's strange, yes, it's strange
Though I guess it's quite clear
I killed the antelope, the deer
And there's no home on my range
Yes, I'm a little de-arranged but I can change

It's not my fault that I'm so evil
It's society, sobriety
You know my momma picked cotton
And my daddy, boll weevil
It was history, it wasn't me

But I can change, I can change
I can learn to keep my promises, I know it
Open up my heart and I will show it
Any minute passed 'til I outgrow it

You'll never change, you'll never change
You'll always be a dog with me

Yes, but don't be such a boob
Manna from Heaven shall be my food
My acts of past were misconstrued
And God above will watch me change
And while I'm changing, I'll be changing, while I change
Soon

But I can change, I can change
I can learn to keep my promises, I swear it
Open up my heart and I will tear it
Any minute now, I swear, I'll share it
I'm gonna change
