I'm goin' away, baby. But I will be comin' back. I'm goin' away, baby. But I will be comin' back. I'm a man now, baby. An I sure can have my fun. My mama she told papa, said the same. 'Now that you're a man.' 'You sure can have your fun.' Ooh, an I sure can have my fun. When I was laying down. I heard mama an papa, talkin'. I heard papa tell mama. 'That boy's a man, now.' 'Why hold him down?' 'Let him go have his fun.' An I hear them say it. I was layin' down thinkin' to myself. I over heard 'em. I felt so good. Went on Boogie'n just the same. Jump Chillun! Look-a-here now, baby. I'm twenty-one, now. An I'm a man an I know. I can stay out all night long. Til the break of day. No worry 'bout a thing. I can take care of myself from now on in. Yes daddy, yes daddy. An we will have some fun.
