♪♫ Papa don`t take no mess
Papa don`t take no mess
Papa is the man who can understand
How a man has to do
Whatever he can

Papa don`t, Papa don`t, Papa don`t


Papa don`t take no mess, no
He don`t take no mess

Now Papa might grin
Drink a little taste of gin
Bet his last ten on
A little game of skins, hit me

Papa don`t take no mess
Papa don`t take no mess
Papa don`t, Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t take no mess, hey, hey

Papa digs the chick
If she look real slick
Papa rap is very quick
He defintely ain`t no trick

Oh, yeah

Papa don`t, Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t take no mess
Papa is the man
Who will take a stand
Papa don`t take no mess
Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t, don`t, Papa don`t

Look, dig this

Papa didn`t cuss
He didn`t raise a whole lotta fuss
But when we did wrong
Papa beat the hell out of us

Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t, Papa don`t
Papa don`t take no mess
Papa don`t take no mess

I saw Papa cry when he
Thought that I would die
Lookie here
I saw papa cry
I saw Papa cry when he
Thought that I would die
He says something was in his eye
I knew it was a lie
Papa loves his son

Mama said Papa`s smart
Papa got a whole lotta heart
And Papa would do his part
When the game get hard, hit me ♪♫
