  • One.. Two.. One..Two..Three Lets GO..

    [Chorus - repeat 2X]
    Back in the mud again, I confess, I'm so happy here
    There's nothing you can do to make me stay away, away, away

    [Verse 1]
    It's just that country boy, city slick
    Hot boy, temperament
    Add the pony, add the flame
    Either way it's an event
    If it's me consider it
    Pardon the coincidence, even though they mumble at me
    Suckers keep they distances
    Father, Kay Hey
    What's that they say
    Hip hop redneck that's a safe place
    Say what makes you comfortable
    With me cause I like it here
    How about a rural dwelling, urban music pioneer
    Turn it up, let it bang
    Run with me, I bet you can't
    Took too much to make it float
    Never will I let it sink
    So we reinvented it
    Boy are we generous
    Hoping that my moment pass
    I can see the end of it
    25 years of life, I was born yesterday
    Loving life, doing right, earning every breath I take
    Standing in the mud again, cause it seems to pay me well
    Playing with my not so distance cousins from the ATL AHHH..

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 2]
    Ah Yea, Ah Yea
    Press it up
    Ship it out
    Call the pony
    Rent it out
    Everything I Am today
    Is what I've really what I've been about
    Athens Georgia Resident
    Native of Lagrange though
    I don't love the Peach State, brothers say it ain't so
    Naw, Sir, In Fact it's quite the opposite
    Loving y'all from Brunswick, Up to the metropolis
    Can't forget about my Betty Betty in the ?.
    That put them triple X's at the end of Andy's Monica
    How can I run from, everything that made me
    Knowing all the love I get is appreciated greatly
    Now witness something truly inconceivable
    Bubba International, but still he kept it regional
    Trying to make my momma proud
    Ricky Lathens see me smile
    Gotta make sure this next CD is the fire
    Making sure everyone one of my talented associates gets what they deserve
    Nothing short that's appropriate YEA!!!

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    Get your cup, fill it up
    Soda don't appeal to us
    But if your broke, do what you can't that alone still enough
    Help us out if your rich, cause we about to pitch a bitch
    Just stop by the store and grab a case of that, a six of this
    Hey Betty get it ready, cause you daddys in route
    Let her join the Beat Club, peep that lil trim out
    Have her screaming new south, with out pulling loot out
    He always wonder what you doing, let him wonder who now
    At the end of the day, I will have no regrets
    Got it done on every front, and I ain't even focused yet
    At the bottom of the pond, swimming with them mud cats
    If you dive in I'm perusing for a grudge match
    Spell It out L-E-G-E-N-D, I still believe
    What ever goal God set for me, indeed I will achieve
    Either in this life, for in the next
    Whether drinking Gin or Becks
    Bubba fin, to bring it home, still you can send a check
