    GROWN

    Charles Lee got dressed one night,
    Put on his baddest goin’ out clothes
    Slipped on his shoes and put on his cap
    Dressed to kill
    A sharp, fine young brother
    Sixteen and grown
    He strutted to the front door
    And was almost out when his mama called
    "Boy, didn’t I say wasn’t gon’ be no partying tonight?"
    Charles Lee cocked his hat and pushed out his chest,
    Took a whiff of his bad self and said,
    "I’m grown, Ada D, I’m grown and I’m going out,
    And I’ll be back when I’m good and ready".
    He strolled into town and strutted among his boys,
    Bragging ‘bout how he put his mama Ada in her place,
    Cause he was grown.
    Charles Lee danced and partied and hung out late,
    Came strolling home round 1 a.m. still cocky as can be,
    When a blow from behind brought him down on one knee,
    And a voice from above said , "Boy you won’t ever be,
    as grown or as bad as Miss Ada D."
