My mama told me lots of things
About the live we lead
Told me it was too easy
To live a life of greed
She said you be a good man
And I'll be proud of you
'Cos you can't do no better
If that's all you learn to do

All we got is one short life
Far as we can find
And if you don't know how to live
The world will be unkind

No, no curse upon my name
No way I look at a bad guy
And think that I'm the same
No I won't be blamed
I live without dishonor
I won't have to die ashamed

Old lady told me plenty
Told me what to do
How to act in society
How to make it through
She said always mind your manners
And don't you talk no trash
And if you hear somebody dissing you
Go over and kick his ass

One thing is for certain
By all we know and love
If you compromise your integrity
You should drown in your own blood

Now even though I'm old and weird
I remember what she said
I always knew she was right
So I kept it in my head
I never tried to hurt the world
Never was drove by greed
Believe I mostly did my best
What more do you want from me?

All there is is one short life
Far as we can find
And if you don't know how to live
You're gonna lose your mind

No no dirt upon my name
No way I look at a bad guy
And thing I share blame
No I'm not the same
As I love and die, I'm certain I
Refuse to die ashamed
