Got your jourdache jeans Got your pretty long hair Dinner and a movie powder your nose Take their honey for lay Just like pay You're just a human being on this planet You're just flesh and blood like all the rest You'll get old and have a wrinkled ass Humans are ses I want to be a bear I want to shit in the woods In my cave hunt my prey Could be you, I want to have food Burgers not berries Ladies are women but women are ladies Got a baited hook you are calling it Your cherry You want to settle down And you want to get married I don't want to smell your muff
