Girl, I would dial your number without lookin' And you'd always pick it up as soon as it rang And I'd hear you say, "I hear my momma comin'" And you'd hide the phone up underneath the sheets
And I'd hear her say, "Girl, haven't I told you? Yeah, I know who you're talkin' to"
"And it's that bad boy It's that wrong side of the tracks boy That break your heart and won't come back boy Why's that boy the one you love?" You're not that bad boy
You weren't scared but you had every reason Me and my boys were nothin' short of dangerous But you said, "Boy, you know I've heard you talked to Jesus How's a tough guy like you afraid to love?"
"You ain't so bad, boy You've done some things you can't take back, boy But I see straight through that boy And that boy's the one I love And you ain't so bad boy No, you ain't so bad Ain't so bad"
Well I remember sittin' down beside your momma My hands shakin' in my pocket with that ring She said, "Boy, I always knew you loved my daughter She loves you too and I think I know what she sees"
"So alright, bad boy [?] don't come back, boy You know that's how she lost her dad, boy And that boy is the one I loved He was my bad boy He was my bad boy Yes, you ain't so bad Yes, you ain't so bad, boy"
