Yeah, I was born a tiger, I've always had my way
Don't ever try to change me this or any other day
Don't let me hear you argue the things I say I do
Don't give me no trouble or you all and I are through

Little girl, can you hear what I say?
Yeah, I'm an easy going guy but I always gotta have my way

[interlude]

Well, come on, pretty baby, let's go out tonight
Your mom won't have to worry, everything'll be alright
Don't let me hear you talking, just be there when I call
'Cause what I do I do my way or it won't be done at all

Little girl, can you hear what I say?
Yeah, I'm an easy going guy but I always gotta have my way

I'm an easy going guy but I always gotta have my way

[spoken]
You better believe it, baby
