Lyrics:

(Genius)

 

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah

Some call me the gangster of love

Some people call me Maurice

 

‘Cause I speak of the pompatus of love

 

People talk about me, baby

Say I’m doing you wrong, doing you wrong

Well, don’t you worry, baby, don’t worry

‘Cause I’m right here, right here, right here, right here at home

 

‘Cause I’m a picker, I’m a grinner

 

I’m a lover, and I’m a sinner

 

I play my music in the sun

I’m a joker, I’m a smoker

I’m a midnight toker

 

I sure don’t want to hurt no one

 

I’m a picker, I’m a grinner

 

I’m a lover, and I’m a sinner

 

I play my music in the sun

I’m a joker, I’m a smoker

I’m a midnight toker

 

I get my lovin’ on the run

 

Whoo

Whoo

 

You’re the cutest thing that I ever did see

I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree

 

Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time

 

Oee, baby, I’ll sure show you a good time

 

‘Cause I’m a picker, I’m a grinner

 

I’m a lover, and I’m a sinner

 

I play my music in the sun

I’m a joker, I’m a smoker

I’m a midnight toker

 

I get my lovin’ on the run

 

I’m a picker, I’m a grinner

 

I’m a lover, and I’m a sinner

 

I play my music in the sun

I’m a joker, I’m a smoker

I’m a midnight toker

 

I sure don’t want to hurt no one

 

Whoo

Whoo

 

People keep talking about me, baby

Say I’m doing you wrong

Well, don’t you worry, don’t worry, no, don’t worry, mama

‘Cause I’m right here at home

 

You’re the cutest thing I ever did see

Really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree

 

Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time

C’mon baby, now I’ll show you a good time
