"Careful Man" lyrics

Careful Man

I don't gamble
I don't fight
I don't be hanging around
In them bars at night
Yes, I used to be a fighter
But now I'm a wiser man

I don't drink much
I don't smoke
I don't be hardly messing around
With no dope
Yes, I used to be a problem
But now I am a careful man

But if you used to want to see a commotion
You should've seen the man that I used to be
I was trouble in perpetual motion
Trouble with a capital T

Staying out late
Having fun
And shot off every single shot in my gun
Yes, I used to be a lover
But now I am an older man

But if you used to want to see a commotion
You should've seen the man that I used to be
I was trouble in perpetual motion
Trouble with a capital T

Staying out late
Having fun
And shot off every single shot in my gun
Yes, I used to be a terror
But now I am a tired man
