Mamma Didn't Raise No Hound

I'm sitting here about a quarter to three
There's nobody in the place except for you and me
And I'm leaving in a minute, but I'm only just beginning
Now

And I won't let you down
Mamma didn't raise no hound

So come on, take my hand—take me however you want
I'll be a gentleman, but then again tomorrow I'm gone
And you can play the virgin maiden, but I notice you keep hanging
Around

And I won't let you down
I'm a prince; can't you see my crown?

Solo

Whatever happens tonight stays between you and me
It's no concession, just the way that I was brought up to be
So I might divide and conquer, but I'll leave you feeling properly
Found

And I won't let you down
Around here, your name won't be renowned

No, I won't let you down
Mamma didn't raise no hound
