Say man What's that boy? I want to tell you about your girlfriend, What about my girl? But you don't look strong enough to take the message I'm strong enough I might hurt your feelings My feelings already hurt by bein' here with you Well, I was walking down the street with your girl the other day Uh-huh And the wind was blowin' real hard Is that right? And the wind blew her hair into my face Uh-huh Hee-hee, you know what else happened? What happened? The wind blew her hair into her face Yeah? And we went a little further; you want to hear the rest of it? I might as well... The wind blew her hair into the street! Hey, since you told me about my girl I'm gonna tell you about yours I was walking down the street with your girl Yeah? I took her home, for a drink, you know Took her home? Yeah, just for a drink Oh But that chick looked so ugly she had to sneak up on a glass to get a drink of water Hah-hah-hah-hah, well, you've got the nerve to call somebody ugly Why you're so ugly the stork that brought you into the world ought to be arrested That's alright My mama didn't have to put a sheet over my head so sleep could slip up on me Hey, looky here What's that?
