rate me

(Chorus)

Gonna get what's mine

And wild horses couldn't take it from me

Papa said I'm a golden child

And the whole world's gonna fall at my feet

It's all comin' to me

(Verse)

Going down pickin' when it's harvest time

Gonna get my share, gonna get what's mine for me

Sun is a-blazin' down, but I don't mind

I'm pickin', I'm diggin', it's harvest time for me

(Pre-Chorus)

When I get my little eye on it

When I get my little mind on it

You best believe

(Verse)

Oh, sweet tooth aching in my head

Gonna fill my belly to the brim, oh, yes, indeed

Hive is a-buzzin' in a hollow tree

And I don't care if I gotta kill a little honey bee

(Pre-Chorus)

Cause when I get my little eye on it

When I get my little mind on it

You best believe

Oh, my, my, my, my

It's all comin' to me

(Chorus)

Gonna get what's mine

And wild horses couldn't take it from me

Papa said I'm a golden child

And the whole world's gonna fall at my feet

It's all comin' to me

(Verse_

Poppin' and a-suckin' till the weather is dry

Nobody's boomin' in these busted times like me

Down in Texas where the cattle don't roam

Oil is a-drippin' and the savings and loan - they bleed

(Pre-Chorus)

When I get my little eye on it

When I get my little mind on it

You best believe

Oh, my, my, my, my

It's all comin' to me

It's all comin' to me

(Interlude)

Papa came along and he shook the tree

Down came a butcher and begged for me

Papa shooed away all the honey bees

Papa dug a well and it flows for me

Papa cut the mother-load fish for me

Papa set a fire and it burned for me

Papa put a skillet in the flame to fry

Papa put his medicine in a spoon of mine

Papa said the Lord took a shine to me

Papa said I gotta set the whole world free

Whole world free, whole world free

Oo, papa said, I was gonna be
