Make It Right

I'm fitting out
I'm fitting in
And those diesel rigs aw they're rammin' by
But I ain't blue
Now if I go lame
I just flag a ride

I'm lookin' out
For a street corner girl
I'm lookin' out
For a street corner girl

And she's gonna beat me whip me spank me
Aw make it right again
Trying a little trick honey
Aw that you never used before

I wanna be your victim
your sweet little victim of love
Come on and beat me, whip me, spank me
Mama make it right again

Ah make it right
It's been wrong too long
Oh, Johnny Dreams
You and my white queen been rolling again?

Well the talk around town is
She might be burned out
But I know by midnight
She gonna burn you down
Yeah, she gonna burn you down

I'm lookin' out in the wings
For a street corner girl
I'm lookin' out
For a street corner girl

And she's gonna beat me, whip me, spank me
Aw make it right again,
Trying a little trick honey
You never used before

I wanna be your victim
Your sweet little victim of love
Come on and beat me, spank me, whip me
Mama make it right again
