  I wonder why nobody don't like me
  Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
  I wonder why nobody don't like me
  Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
  
  I leave my whole house and home
  My children don't want me no more
  Bad talk inside de house dey bring
  And when I talk they start to sing
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" they shout
  Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
  "That is your daddy", "oh, no"
  "My daddy can't be ugly so"
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey
  
  
  
  I couldn't even digest me supper
  Due to thee children's behavior
  John ("Yes, pa")-"come here a moment"
  "Bring de belt, you're much too impudent"
  John says it's James who started first
  James tells thee story in reverse
  I drag my belt from off me waist
  You should hear dem screamin' round de place
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" they shout
  Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
  "That is your daddy", "oh, no"
  "My daddy can't be ugly so"
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey (oh)
  
  
  
  So I began to question de mudda
  These children ain't got no behavior
  So I began to question de mudda
  These children ain't got no behavior
  
  "They're playing with you" my wife declared
  "You should be proud of them, my dear"
  "These children were taught too bloomin' slack"
  That ain't no kind of joke to crack
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" they shout
  Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
  "That is your daddy", "oh, no"
  "My daddy can't be ugly so"
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
  
  FADE
  "Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
  "Shut your mout' " "Go away"
