Here I am, head over heel in love again
Here I am, head over heel in love again
Besides you, woman it was my mother and that's where love begins

I used to be a playboy, I played hard both night and day
I used to be a playboy and I played hard both night and day
But since I met Miss Lemon, she has made me change my ways

Oh yes woman, you've caught the old coon1 at last
Oh yes woman, you have caught the old coon at last
But I just hope I be happy with my future, as I am with my present and past

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
They caught the old coon at last

Now I love the life I'm livin', and I'm livin' the life I love
Now I love the life I'm livin', and I'm livin' the life I love
Woman I don't believe I could be any happier, if I was livin' in heaven above

__________
Note 1: coon, usually an offensive word for black person.
