I was a baby boy
In a big boy's world
Didn't know my left from right
When it came to a girl
I was always trip, trip, tripping
Always playing the fool
Didn't know what I was doing
Didn't know any rule

Girls they always laughed at me
But I never seemed to know it
And when I finally wised on up
I tried to never ever show it

Well I stood by and I took my licks
I never bothered to shove
I got kicked
Kicked in the butt by love

I was a baby boy
In a big boy's town
When it came to loving a girl
Didn't know my up from down
I always said something kinda lame
I always sounded dumb
I was just about as subtle
As a big bass drum

Girls they always gave me grief
And I didn't get why
Didn't get why I bugged them so
Like a tsetse fly

I was a baby boy
At a big boy's table
Didn't know which fork to use
Didn't know nothing, Mable
Thought I could fake my way
But I lacked finesse
Wound up in a no man's land
But I digress

Girls they seemed pretty foreign to me
Never got the hang
Whenever I endeavored to make a move
It was all sturm and drang
