Howcome ya turned me down?
I didn't mean nuthin why -- why
Ida done anything fur ya
Rod job or what hav ya.
Tell me there aint no other bozo
That yur just tired uv my neckin'
An tired uv my line uv talk
Lissen Kid -- don't lose me 'count of that
I'll change my line, I still got tha book
I'll -- I'll do anything
Lissen Kid -- I lova ya --
Don't turn me down!
