Look at here now, man
I done told you one time
I ain't gonna tell you no more
Leave my wife alone, I take you in

And you wore my cloth
You spend my money
You slept in my bed
And you know it ain't right

You come to me
You had no place to stay
You said, "Johnny, let me stay with you"
I said, "Yeah man"

I fixed the place for you
When I found out
You're goin' out with my wife
You know it ain't right

I'ma warn you
I'ma warn you right now
Don't play with me
Keep on doin' the thing you do

Next time, I'll tell you
I'm gonna use my rod
I'm gonna use my rod, oh yeah
I'm gonna use my rod

Now, man, you know you ain't doin' it right
You know that ain't right
You're goin' around, yeah
You tellin' everybody you got my wife
Oh yeah, I ain't gonna tell you no more

Next time, I'll tell you
I'm gonna use my rod, oh yeah, oh yeah
I'm gonna use my rod

You know man, you know you ain't doin' right
You know you ain't
I come to you as man to man
And tell you, leave my wife alone

Next time, I'll tell you
I'm gonna use my rod
I'm gonna use my rod
I'm gonna use my rod
I'm gonna use my rod
