I'm gonna buy me a razor and a big gun, too,
I'm gonna shoot until the sun goes down,
And if I see my baby with another gal,
I'm gonna kill her and serve my time.

Oh, my mind's on you all the time,
No matter where you roam,
Oh, my mind's on you all the time,
Oh, sugar babe, you ain't a-treatin' me right!

Oh, my little daddy, just listen to my song:
Who's gonna be your mama, and love you all day long?
Put your arms around me, lay your head on my breast,
And when I'm dead and gone, just sing this song,
Your mama's gone to rest!

'Cause my mind's on you all the time!
No matter where you roam,
Oh, my mind's on you all the time,
Oh, sugar babe, you ain't a-treatin' me right!
