Hey, when C.C. Rider was just a snot nosed kid
I was already known for doin' what I did
The women all screamed as I walked by
My daddy would curse me and my momma'd start to cry

'Cause I was known, yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'Cause I was just too well known, for doin' what I did

Hey, my momma called the preacher, called up everyone she knew
All of her friends up to no good with you know who
When old Casanova was a just lovesick punk
I'd already broke me so many hearts, I could've started me a dump

'Cause I was known, yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'Cause I was just too well known for doin' what I did

The older boys was teasin' me on my first day of school
So finally the teachers let me break all the rules
The press heard about it, tried to put me in the news
The women had no comment for fear of what they'd lose

'Cause I was known yeah for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, hey for doing what I did
It ain't no way they could ever get kissed
'Cause I was just too well known, for doin' what I did

Ahh, it was like I was strong, since I was born
Man, I stood alone, yeah baby, I was strong
Doin' what I did, doin' what I did
Ah, doin' what I did

Hey, when old C.C. Rider was a snot nosed kid
I was already known baby, for doin' what I did
When little Casanova was a snot nosed punk
I'd already broke so many hearts, I could've started me a dump

I was known, for doin' what I did
My reputation was strong, yeah for doin' what I did
All the time I was know, yeah for doin' what I did
