lyrics

I grew up in Georgia
But never was a peach
Couldn't find a lesson
My Daddy couldn’t teach

I stepped outta Georgia
My brothers in my wake
I may love Atlanta
But I got a name to make

Better look out, I’m a black belt
And I got four more back home
Got a crossbow that’s good to go
And a Joe or two on loan
Oh, I would tell you what I do
But then I’d have to kill you
Beauty may be skin deep
But I’m lethal to the bone

Got myself a code name
It matches my red hair
You can call me Master Sergeant
But don’t presume to stare

I’m your new instructor
And you ain’t seen nothin’ yet
I may break you, honey
But I’ll never break a sweat


Better look out, I’m a black belt
And I got four more back home
Got a crossbow that’s good to go
And a Joe or two on loan
Oh, I would tell you what I do
But then I’d have to kill you
Beauty may be skin deep
But I’m lethal to the bone

Joined up with the Army
And then the CIA
Never found a soldier
I couldn’t keep at bay

Until I met in combat
A man I couldn’t best
Guess I like the strong and silent
Better than the rest


Better look out, I’m a black belt
And I got four more back home
Got a crossbow that’s good to go
And a Joe or two on loan
Oh, I would tell you what I do
But then I’d have to kill you

Better look out, I’m a black belt
And I got four more back home
Got a crossbow that’s good to go
And a Joe or two on loan
Oh, I would tell you what I do
But then I’d have to kill you
Beauty may be skin deep
But I’m lethal to the bone

Beauty may be skin deep
But I’m lethal to the bone
