POISON lyrics : "you don't mess around with jim"

Hey!! Come on now, everyone sit down and shut up a minute.
Give me a chance to talk, it's my turn.




Uptown got it's hustlers

Bowery got it's bums
42nd Street got Big Jim Walker
He's a pool-shootin' son of a gun

Yea, he big and dumb as a man can come
But he stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night

You know they all call big Jim "Boss" ... just because ...
And they say ...



You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind

You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim


From south Alabama came a country boy
Hey say I'm lookin' for a man named Jim
I am a pool-shootin' boy

My name Willie McCoy
But down home folks call me Slim
Yea I'm lookin' for the man of 42nd Street

He drivin' some drop top Cadillac
And I know it sounds funny, but he took all my money,
now I come to get my money back.

And everybody say Jack (JACK)

And they say ...



You don't tug on Superman's cape



You don't spit into the wind

You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim



Well a hush fell over the pool room
Jimmy come boppin' in off the street

And when the cuttin' were done
The only part that wasn't bloody
Was the soles of the big man's feet

Yea he were cut in a million places
And he were shot in a couple more
And you better believe

They told a different kind of story
When big Jim hit the floor ... See ya Jim Boy. And they say


You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger

And you don't mess around with Slim

Now, if I were Big Jim, I woulda Taken all the money,

grabbed the best looking girl I seen,
jumped in my car, and got the hell outta town.
You'd see me NOOO more.


You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind

You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim


You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger

And you don't mess around with Slim
