  • Wild hearted son
    Baby, the world didn't want me to run
    To try and break me down to my knees, yeah
    Wild hearted, yeah yeah
    Yeah

    Well now
    You know, I shoot from the hip now
    My fist raised in the air
    I'm a whirlwind dreamer, baby
    With my head high in the clouds, yeah

    Ow, don't take me too lightly
    I got the blues power, baby
    I'm just a breed of society
    I'm pushin' hard and stealin' free
    Don't you try to lay no trip on me, yeah

    I'm a wild hearted son
    I'm comin' down like a rolling stone
    Wild hearted son, yeah
    I'm a wild hearted son
    Hey mama, the world didn't want me to run
    Wild hearted son

    Ow, I was born to the city
    But I longed to roam free
    Got a screaming horse in my belly
    Scar on my heart

    I live outside of convention
    You know the people who stare
    I'm just a breed of society
    I'm pushin' hard and I'm stealin' free
    Don't try to lay no trip on me, whoa

    'Cause I'm a wild hearted son
    I'm comin' down like a rolling stone, yeah
    Wild hearted son
    I'm a wild hearted son
    Lil' honey, the world didn't want me to run, yeah
    Wild hearted son

    Baby, baby, yeah yeah
    Wild hearted son, yeah
    The world didn't want me to run
    Try to break me down, down down down down

    I'm a wild hearted son
    I'm comin' down like a rolling stone, oh yeah
    Wild hearted son
    I'm a wild hearted son
    Lil' honey, the world didn't want me to run
    Wild hearted son, son, baby, yeah
