Simple Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I ain't nothin' but a simple man
They call me a redneck I reckon that I am
But there's things going on make me mad down to the core

I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
And I'm madder than hell and I ain't gonna take it no more

We tell our kids to just say no
Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
Slaps him on the wrist then he turns him back out on the town

But if I have my way with people sellin' dope
Take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing till the sun goes down

Well, you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you go and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man

Now I'm the kinda man who would not harm a mouse
But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house
I've got twelve guage shotgun waiting on the other side

So don't go pushing me against my will
I don't want to have to fight you but I darn sure will
If you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by

As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess

You just take them rascals out in the swamp
Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

You know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their Bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you go and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man

Watch where you go and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man
