My mama birthed me in the heat o' summer

I knew no happy home out on the range

I grew up dancin' to a diff'rent drummer

I 'xpect that makes you view me kinda strange

 

But if you think that you can work me over

An' yearn to turn me into someone new

Or wanna train me like your hound dog "Rover"

Then listen up 'cause I've got news for you

 

You can't pull the horns off a heifer

You can't pick the fuzz off a flea

You can't peel the spots off a leopard

So don't you bother tryin' changin' me

 

My daddy wudn't much like "Mister Cleaver"

My features he fought hard to rearrange

Though I'm no kin to "Wally" an' "The Beaver"

There ain't a blessèd thing that I would change

 

So if you think that you can work me over

An' yearn to turn me into someone new

Or wanna train me like your hound dog "Rover"

Then listen up 'cause I've got news for you

 

You can't pull the horns off a heifer

You can't pick the fuzz off a flea

You can't peel the spots off a leopard

So don't you bother tryin' changin' me

 

No you can't pull the horns off a heifer

'N' you can't pick the fuzz off a flea

An' you can't peel the spots off a leopard

So don't you bother tryin' changin' me

 

I said don't you bother tryin'

Or soon I will be flyin'

An' you'll be left here cryin'

Don't you bother tryin' changin' me
