Lyrics



What's this I hearthat's going all around town?

The people are sayin' you gonna put the kid down,

Lordy, what're you doing?

You can call it what you want,

I call it messin' with the kid.

You told me you loved me,

You told me a lie.

I love you woman till the day I die.

Lordy, what're you doing?

You can call it what you want,

I call it messin' with the kid.

You took the kid's car and drove all around town,

Tellin' everybody you're gonna put the kid down.

Lordy, what're you doing?

Call it what you want,

I call it messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

You can call it what you want,

I call it messin' with the kid.

You told me you loved me,

You told me a lie.

I love you woman till the day I die.

Take my car and drive all around town,

Tellin' everybody you gonna put me down.

Lordy, what're you doing?

Call it what you want,

I call it messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.

Messin' with the kid.
