I ain't nothin' but a simple man They call me a redneck I reckon that I am But there's things goin' on that make me mad down to the core

I have to work like a dog to make ends meet There's crooked politicians and crime in the street And I'm madder than hell, and I ain't a-gonna take it no more We tell our kids, "Just say no" And then some panty-waist judge lets a drug dealer go Slaps him on the wrist and he turns him back out on the town But if I had my way with people sellin' dope Take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope I'd hang 'em up high and let them swing 'til the sun goes down Well, you know what's wrong with the world today People done gone and put their Bibles away They're livin' by the law of the jungle, not the law of the land Well, the Good Book says it so I know it's the truth An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth You better watch where you go and remember where you been That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man Now I'm the kinda man who wouldn't harm a mouse But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house I got a 12-gauge shotgun waitin' on the other side So don't go pushin' me against my will I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will If you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by As far as I'm concerned, there ain't no excuse For the rapin' and the killin' and the child abuse But I've got a way to put an end to all that fast You just take them rascals out in the swamp Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest Well, you know what's wrong with the world today People done gone and put their Bibles away They're livin' by the law of the jungle, not the law of the land Well, the Good Book says it so I know it's the truth An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth You better watch where you go and remember where you been That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man Watch where you go and remember where you been That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man
