Lyrics

No don't you know my daddy told me Told me right from the start About youth He said no matter how old a man is He's partly a boy in his heart Yeah, and that's the truth He said you'd be surprised by the things you do now That you're still gonna do Oh, but you will Like when it comes to the way You treat your woman You can't let the boy overpower the man in you Oh, let me tell you that Every man, has to understand That you can go out with the fellas But if the boy tells ya, stay late Yeah, late at night You know that if you stop to think about it The man in you is gonna say when 'Cause it isn't right Oh, you'd be surprised by the things That a man who loves his woman, won't do Oh, but you will 'Cause when it comes to the way You treat your woman You can't let the boy overpower the man in you

Just one more thing now that All guys gotta realize That they are many pretty women But if a boy ever looks their way, yeah And winks an eye You know that if you stop to think about it The man in you is gonna feel bad Come on and pass them by Oh, you'd be surprised by the girls Who walk on over at you too Oh, but you will But when it comes to the way That you treat your woman You can't let the boy overpower the man in you You know, you know, you know you can't No no, the man in you [FADE]
