I know some folk who live out in the country - Got themselves one good ol’ mule
He do his fair share of haulin’ and plowin’ - But, you know he ain’t no fool
Talk nice and aim him in the right direction - He’ll cut you a good straight row
But if you raise your voice and crack that whip - There won’t be no garden to grow

Cause that ol’ mule got feelins, too - Yeah, that ol’ mule got feelins, too
Listen to what I’m sayin’ here, woman - Could be talkin’ bout me and you

At the end of the day that mule just want to - Lay down and take his rest
Put on the feed bag and thank him - For givin’ it his best
In the mornin’ he ain’t up to no yellin’ - He don’t to want to hear no sass
Cause if you make him mad and give him a chance
He might bite you in the WORST OF PLACES

Cause that ol’ mule got feelins, too - Yeah, that ol’ mule got feelins, too
Listen to what I’m sayin’ here, woman - Might be talkin’ bout me and you

I’m a bonafide man
I ain’t no mule, I ain’t no fool – You keep on yellin’, I’ll lose my cool
You want a mule, move out to the country – You want a boytoy – Well, it ain’t me
Cause I’m a man. Just look and see, girl – B_O_N_A_F_I_D_E
You better listen now, to what I’m putting down – I ain’t no mule, I ain’t no clown

Cause that ol’ mule got feelins, too - Lord, that ol’ mule got feelins, too
You better listen to what I’m sayin’ now, woman - Might be talkin’ bout me and you
You better listen to what I’m sayin’ now, woman - Might be talkin’ bout me and you
