He said son have we got a deal for you Were gonna make you a star and give you $50,000 too I showed him my momma didn't raise no fool I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie I can tell you right now I was born to boogie Well, my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon And I never back down and I love a good challenge What I do now is what I did then I like to get down with all my rowdy friends Well I can be sweet and I can be mean I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans My shades are chrome, my guitar--steel If you think I won't, then believe me I will Get down on you baby, cuz I ain't no rookie I was put here to party and I was born to boogie
