Kris Kristofferson – Mean Old Man lyrics

If I look like a mean old man that's what I am
If I look like a mean old man that's what I am
If I look like a mean old man
Who'll do you any way he can
To break your heart and kiss your hand
That's what I am

And if I look like a good old friend that's what I am
If I look like a good old friend that's what I am
If I look like a good old friend
Who's good at bending with the wind
To be your friend right to the end
That's what I am

Chorus:
And if I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
If I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
If I look like a voodoo doll
Who takes his licking standing tall
Who'd rather bite you back than crawl
That's what I am

If I look like your uncle Bob that's what I am
If I look like your uncle Bob that's what I am
If I look like your uncle Bob
Who likes to slap you on the back and rob you
While he still can do the job
That's what I am

Chorus:
And if I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
If I look like a voodoo doll that's what I am
If I look like a voodoo doll
Who takes his licking standing tall
Who'd rather bite you back than crawl
That's what I am
