Well, the times gettin' hard for you little girl
I'm a hummin' and a strummin' all over God's world
You can't remember when you got your last meal
And you don't know just how a woman feels

You didn't know what rock 'n' roll was
Until you met my drummer on a gray tour bus
I got there in the nick of time
Before he got his hands across your state line

I said, I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe

Now it's the middle of the night on the open road
The heater don't work and it's oh, so cold
You're lookin' tired, you're lookin' kinda beat
The rhythm of the street, sure knocks you off your feet

You didn't know how rock 'n' roll looked
Until you caught your sister with the guys from the group
Half-way home in the parkin' lot
By the look in her eyes, she was givin' what she got

I said, I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe

Woman, you're a mess gonna die in your sleep
There's blood on my amp and my fenders beat
Can't keep you home, you're messin' around
My best friend told me, you're the best lick in town

You didn't know that rock 'n' roll burned
So you bought a candle and you live and you learn
You got the rhythm, you got the speed
Mamma's little baby likes it short and sweet

I said, I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe

I said, I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy, babe
I, I, I, I once bitten twice shy
