Now, I am a G man
Knockin' on yo' door
Now, I am a G man
Knockin' on yo' door
Now you done got yourself in trouble
An now you got to go

Lady, please don't kill nobody
Go ahead an have your way
Lady, please don't kill nobody
Go ahead an have your way
But the day you kill somebody
I'll lock you up that day

Please lady, please lady
Please treat ev'rybody right
Please lady, please lady
Please treat ev'rybody right
Please don't be no murder'er
Please take my advise

'Play that thing, boy'
'Play it'

(guitar)

Now I been wantin' to be a G man
Baby, all my life
I've been longin' to be a G man
Baby, all my life
Because my poor mother was murdered
My brother an my wife.
