|G / / / |C / G / I'm just a plain ole country boy, and I like to do what's right, |G / / / |A / D / But just like any other boy, I like to hold em' tight, |G / / / |C / G / Some-times I got re-sistance - but no matter how I try, |G / / / |D / G / | When a cute little gal just looks at me, with a gleam in her eye. G And I'd say, "you better not do that", and she'd say "Why?”, / |D / G / | And I'd say "cos you just better not do that".

When was in a country school, I always had a girl, That'd laugh and giggle all so cute, and put me in a whirl, And every day at recess time, she'd follow me outside , I'd scratch my head and wonder, are they ever satisfied? And I’d say "honey, you better not do that", and she'd say "why?", And I'd say "cos you just better not do that".

3.

When I was a little older, I went to a country-dance, I went to have a little fun, wasn’t thinking about romance, But the dim lights just lured them on and they'd snuggle up to me, I knew I wouldn’t last too long, cause I’m human, you see. And I'd say "baby, you better not do that", and she'd say "Why?", And I'd say "cos, you just better not do that".

4.

Now that's the way my life has been, ain’t it a crying shame, How much longer can I last, if I keep playing in the games? Sometimes I don’t know who I am, don’t they know what they're doing? I'm afraid in days to come, girls will be my ruin. And I'd say, "honey, you better not do that" and she'd say "Why?", And I'd say "well, you just better not do that", and she'll still say "Whyyyy?", And I’d say "oh, well, oh, oh, it's alright if you do that".
