I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?

I leave my whole house and home
My children don't want me no more
They cussing black is white and ting
And when I talk they start to sing

Mama, look a boo boo, they shout
Their mother tell them, Shut up your mouth
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly

So, shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they

I couldn't even digest my supper
Due to the children's behavior
John, yes pa, come here a moment
Bring the belt, you too damn petulant.

Daddy, It's Jean who start off first
No daddy is Joyce who start to curse
I drag my belt from off me waist
If you see races out the place

Mama, look at boo boo, they shout
Their mother tell them, Shut up your mouth
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly

So, shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they

So I began to question the mother
"These children ain't got no behavior"
I can't rest in peace in me own place
Tell me what is wrong with me damn face

"They're playing with you," my wife declared
"You should be proud of them, my dear"
Then children were taught too blooming slack
That ain't no kind of joke to crack

Mama, look at boo boo, they shout
Their mother tell them, Shut up your mouth
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly So,

shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they"

I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?

I leave my whole house and go
My mishpucha don't want me no more
Bad talk inside the house they bring
And when I talk they start to sing

Mama, look a boo boo, they shout
Their mother tell them, Shut up your mouth
That is your daddy, oh, no
My daddy can't be ugly

So, shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they

Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth, go away
Mama, look at boo boo they
Shut your mouth
