So you think you know it all, but that's just the arrogance of youth.
I've been there and I've done it, baby. I'm tellin' you the truth.
Your Momma was a tearaway. I used to think I knew it all.
Thought I could play the game and not get played -no-, but then the fall.

Don't you go pull a fast one, I used to be an awful rascal.
Do you think you invented being bad?
I used to be a real rough-hewn, but had to become a tough one.
Do you think you invented being bad?

I bet you think I look respectable: you should've seen me in my prime.
You'd have thought that I was headed for -oh yeah- a life of crime.
I bet you think that you're the clever one -clever one-, the one that got away.
Well, I've seen them come and seen them go -oh yeah- but I have it made.

I'm as sweet as I can be, I've earned respectability.
Do you know I have a history?
You won't get to pull the wool over my eyes.
Fool, if you think you'll make a fool of me.

Nothing you do remotely new. It all been done, when I was young.
In younger days I went astray. You mighta say, it's all a haze.
It's all been done, your brand new craze.
It all begun at Momma's place...

    General Commenton her youtube video blog she says she was inspired to write it when she became pregnant. It was a message to her child that they "better not try to pull one over" on her.
