Say Man Lyrics By Bo Diddley

    say man what’s that boy
    i want to tell you about your girlfriend
    what about my girl
    well you don’t look strong enough to take the message
    i’m strong enough
    i might hurt your feelings
    my feelings are already hurt by being here with you
    well i was walking down the street with your girl the other day
    ah ha
    and the wind was blowing real hard
    is that right
    and the wind blew her hair into my face
    ah ha
    you know what else happened
    what happened
    the wind blew her hair into her face
    and we went a little further you wanna hear the rest of it
    i might as well
    the wind blew her hair into the street
    okay since you told me about my girl
    i’m going to tell you about yours
    i was walking down the street with your girl
    i took her home for a drink you know
    took her home
    yeah just for a drink
    but that chick looked so ugly
    she had to sneak up on the glass to get a drink of water
    you’ve got the nerve to call somebody ugly
    why you so ugly the stork
    that brought you in the world oughta be arrested
    that’s alright my momma didn’t have to put a sheet
    on my head so sleep could slip up on me
    look a here
    what’s that
    where are you from
    south america
    what’s that
    south america
    you don’t look like no south american to me
    i’m still from south america
    what part
    south texas
    where are your working boots at
    i’ve got them on
    there aren’t no boots you got on those broguettes
    hey look a here
    what’s that
    i’ve bin trying to figure out what you is
    i already figured out what you is
    what’s that
    you that thing i throw peanuts at
    look a here
    what’s that
    you should be ashamed of yourself
    calling people ugly
    i didn’t call you ugly
    what you say
    i said you was ruined that’s all
    you know something
    you look like you’ve bin whooped with a ugly stick
    hey i haven’t got nothing to do with it but i beat the fellah right
