Let this be a lesson to you, girl
Don't come around where you know you don't belong
They're riding on the avenue and probably coming after you
And they all look mean and strong

Mean and strong like liquor, mean and strong like fear
Strong like the people from South Alabama
And mean like the people from here
Take it from me, we ain't never gonna change

And Daddy used to empty out his shotgun shells
And fill 'em full of black-eyed peas
He'd aim real low and he tear out your ankles
Or rip right through your knees

There ain't much traffic on the highway
There ain't much traffic on the lake
'Cause the ATF and the ABI got everything they could take
Didn't take it from me, they didn't take it from me
Take it from me

We ain't never gonna change
We ain't doin' nothin' wrong
We ain't never gonna change
So, shut your mouth and play along

Well, I thought about going in the army
I thought about going overseas
I wouldn't have trouble with a piss test
Only problem is my bad left knee

My brother got picked up at Parker's
Got him a ride in a new Crown Vic
They said that he was movin' on with federal level
But they couldn't really make it stick
Take it from me

We ain't never gonna change
We ain't doin' nothin' wrong
We ain't never gonna change
So, shut your mouth and play along

And you can throw me in the Colbert County jailhouse
You can throw me off the Wilson Dam
But there ain't much difference in the man I wanna be
And the man that I really am

We ain't never gonna change
We ain't doin' nothin' wrong
We ain't never gonna change
Just shut your mouth and play along

We ain't never gonna change
We ain't never gonna change
We ain't never gonna change
We ain't never gonna change
