I Got No Shame

I’ma tell you folks a story It’s all of it strait true- It’s my story ‘bout why I’s singin’ the blues… I awoke on a morning Bright and shiny, night after the juke Felt like I been kicked in tha head And my brain had been nuked I was rolling to the john to take my morning ’due When I looked in tha mirr'- As I do to shave of’n that beard An I screamed ‘cause there was a girl! Staring back at me blond pipe curls Even had some pearls I screamed and jumped back As I fell in the toilet swirl! I got no shame SHAME I got no shame SHAME My Mamma yelling at me Terrance, that bet not be a girl Not in this house- I ain’t running no hotel I says “No Mama, , I just had to hurl” She said Son- “what’d I tell you about this world-” Mama swearing in the background talking about Callin the preacher I hopped out the window In all Holy Terror and Fear I got no shame SHAME I got no shame SHAME Now, I was raised with the bible But took another path Follow the way of evil men Messing with ev’ry girl that walks past Guess God done caught up with me As I stand staring at my breasteses In this very danged mirror Where I was always and b'fore a man for 45 year'! Cause I had no shame SHAME I had no shame SHAME! And Lordy I been been framed- Cause I HAD no shame ( Meant to be used in a 4/4 beat blues riff)
