Bad Habits

Fourteen years and heading into April
Mary Lou tired of sixteen, looking more
Daddy and me out working the back forty
Little did I know what was in store
Daddy said its time you were a man now
You're as tired as I was about same...

Mary Lou took the time to make me
Daddy took the time to break me
Of my bad habits
Of my bad habits

Come July and things were getting warmer
Me and Mary Lou just getting it on
Learning things I never heard in school now
Sneaking 'round and staying out until dawn
Mama wondering what's got in baby
Daddy scowling at his little man...

Mary Lou took the time to make me
Daddy took the time to break me
Of my bad habits (oh yeah)
Bad habits
Bad habits

All this time and Daddy's getting madder
Seems just like my work is never done
Mama keeps complainin' about prowlers
And Daddy smiles says not to worry none
That night as I'm sneaking towards my sweetheart
Daddy's shotgun rocksalt sets me straight

Mary Lou took the time to make me
Daddy took the time to break me
Of my bad habits

Aww Mary Lou took the time to make me
Daddy took the time to break me
Of my bad habits

Aww Mary Lou took the time to make me
Daddy took the time to break me
Of my bad habits

Of my bad habits
I love them bad habits
Gotta get some
Bad habits

(He's got bad habits) bad habits
(He's got bad habits) bad habits
(He's got bad habits)
(He's got bad habits) I got to have them
(Yes he has bad habits)
(Yes he has bad habits)
