  • You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
    You're twistin' my melon man, call the cops

    Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
    You know he's gonna take away your promised land
    Hey good lady he just wants what you got you know
    He'll never stop until he's taken the lot
    (Hey hey hey he hey hey)

    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    You're a man

    (You're twistin' my melon man, you speak so hip)

    Hey rainmaker he got golden plans I tell you
    He'll make a stranger in your own land
    Hey good lady he's got God on his side he got a double
    Tongue you never think he would lie

    (Oh he lied, oooh he's twistin' my melon man)
    (Oh he lied, oooh he's twistin' my melon man)

    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    You're a man

    He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
    He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you

    Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
    You know he's gonna take away your promised land
    Hey good lady he's got God on his side he got a double
    Tongue you never think he would lie

    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
    Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
    You're a man

    You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
    You're twistin' my melon man
