lyrics

Think about your teacher & your mamma & your papa
pointing their fingers at you
yellin' and scolding you
sayin i told you so
with every little thing that you do

Think about your girlfriend
The West Virginia Whirlwind
pointing her finger at you
yellin & screaming saying "why do you screen my calls
I would never do that to you"

I know I got a ways to go
I know you got a lot to show me
I promise I will be a better boy next time

Think about your coach and when you
caught him with that roach
he said, "I wouldn't do this if I were you.
I was young like you, and now I smoke and now I booze
{I guess} some games you win, and some you lose"

I know I got a ways to go
I know you got a lot to show me
I promise I will be a better boy next time

I know you got a lot to say
You sure do have a way about you
I promise I will be a better boy next time
