#4 Well I Never

Well I never drove a truck from Maine to Memphis
or thought that I'd stop carin' what people think
and I never took a dive out of a jump plane
or paused at noon o'clock to have a cold, stiff drink
and I never set my foot inside a porn store
and I never been known to jump from man to man
Well they told me once and they told me twice
but I'm just one stickler for advice
'cause baby you make me feel like I can.

And I never told a joke that made my granddad laugh
and I never caught a fish and ate it raw
and I never been told that I'm anything short of normal
or did anything remotely against the law (yeehaw!)
and I never wasted time not doin' nothin'
and I never deviated from the plan
They told me once and they told me twice
but I'm all through with 'nicey-nice'
'cause baby you make me feel like I can.

And I always thought to live a life of safety
and I always sought rewards for workin' hardest and the best,
and all the kids rebelled like this in 1999,
so I figured it'd all been done to death.

So I never danced a fire at a full moon
and I never dropped my trou just to offend
and I never made a fuss when I was trampled
or made a perfect stranger into a friend (hey how you doin'?)
No, and I never told nobody 'bout my problems
nor about the time I ate that purple crayon
They done told me once they done told me twice
but I reckon I'll just throw the dice
'cause baby you make me feel like I can.

They told me three times, told me four,
but it's just the same as it was before
They told me nine times, told me ten,
and they'll prolly tell me again and again
They told me fivefourthreetwoone
but I be one crazy mother gun
'cause baby you make me feel like I can
Baby you make me feel like I can.
