  • A you've been makin' your brags around town
    That you've been a lovin' my man
    But the man I love, when he picks up trash
    He puts it in a garbage can
    And that's what a you look like to me
    And what I see's a pity
    You better close your face and stay outta my way
    If ya don't wanna go to fist city

    If ya don't wanna go to fist city
    Ya better detour around my town
    'Cause I'll grab you by the hair a the head
    And I'll lift a you off a the ground

    I'm not a sayin' my baby's a saint 'cause he ain't
    N' that he won't cat around with a kitty
    I'm here to tell ya gal to lay offa my man
    If ya don't wanna go to fist city

    Come on and tell me what you told my friends
    If you think you're brave enough
    And I'll show you what a real woman is
    Since you think you're hot stuff
    You'll bite off more than you can chew
    If you get too cute or witty
    You better move your feet
    If you don't wanna eat
    A meal that's called fist city

    If you don't wanna go to fist city
    You better detour around my town
    'Cause I'll grab you by the hair a the head
    And I'll lift you offa the ground

    I'm not a sayin' my baby's a saint 'cause he ain't
    N' that he won't cat around with a kitty
    I'm here to tell ya gal to lay offa my man
    If ya don't wanna go to fist city
    I'm here to tell ya gal to lay offa my man
    If ya don't wanna go to fist city Writer/s: LORETTA LYNN
