Do you believe I would take such a thing with me,
And give it to a police man?
I wouldn't do that, mmhmm,
I wouldn't do that.
If I did that would you say, "sir come down and put the charge on me?"
I wouldn't do that, oohhh,
I wouldn't do that.

I'm not a fool to hurt myself,
But I was innocent to what they done to me.
They were wrong, they were wrong.
But give it to me one time (ohh give it to me,yeah!)
Give it to me two times (1, 2)
Give it to me three times (1, 2, 3)
Give it to me four times (1, 2, 3, 4)

Oh, 5446, was my number, was my number now.
Right now somebody else has that number.
One more time. 5447 was my number, was my number now.
Right now somebody else has that number.
'cause we're chillin' and we're chillin' into the club all night.
We're chillin' and we're chillin' into the club all night.
'cause, hear the club, hear the beat, in the dog pound, DJ.

Lord have his grilled cheese.
Some jealous punk,
Snuck up around my back,
Tried to take a lovin' over me;
Lord, I got into a fist fight,
And wound up in jail all night.

Give it to me one time (ohh yes, ooh my pussy)
Give it to me - two times (1, 2)
Give it to me three time (1, 2, 3)
Give it to me four time (1, 2, 3, 4)

People listen up don't stand to near,
I've got somethin' that you all should hear:
All the lies, all the lies all the lies told to me
Form a little part of history.
I was always taught boy meets girl,
Fall in love get married and forget the world.
Nine months later sweet baby's on the way
Kiss 'em on the cheek and life's okay.

I don't feel no pain,
I don't have no time
To listen to conflicting points of view.
Oh, It's a crazy world to live alone.
A ball and chain I call my home,
A ba na na na na whooo!

People listen up don't stand to close,
I've got somethin' that you all should know:
Holy matrimony's not for me,
I'd rather die alone in misery.
Because I was always taught boy meets girl,
Fall in love get married and forget the world.
Nine months later sweet baby's on the way.
Isn't that what they used to say?
When a girl you knew,
And the bonds that we grew,
Turned into a ball and chain, mmm.
I step into the great unknown,
A ball and chain I call my home,
A-ba-na-na-na-na, whooo!

Crazy world to live alone.
When a girl that you knew
And the bonds that we grew
Turned into a ball and chain.
Oh, I step into the great unknown,
On a ball and chain I call my own.
Because marriage doesn't work in the world today.
It's an institution that is in decay
And if I have love I wish to portray,
I will surely find another way.
Because I was always taught that boy meets girl,
Fall in love get married and forget the world.
Nine months later the sweet baby's on the way,
Kiss him on the cheek and life's okay.

I don't feel no pain
I don't have no time to listen to conflicting points of view
Whoa, I step into the great unknown,
On a ball and chain I call my own,
A-ba-na-na-na-na whoooo!
