Attitude Adjustment

This song is by Hank Williams, Jr. and appears on the album Major Moves (1984) and on the compilation album The Complete Hank Williams Jr. (1999).

Now I met an old friend
In the bar the other night
And he got a little drunk
And he wanted to fight
And he jumped up and challenged every man in the room

And just about the time he got the words out
An ol' boy jumped up and closed his mouth
And used his head for a mop
And his butt for a broom

It was an attitude adjustment
I guess it was his first time
An attitude adjustment
Now he understands just fine

He got bent out of shape
And he opened his mouth
And just one appointment
Straightened him right out
It was an adttitude adjustment
Oh, it'll work every time

Well, I've got this big ol' brother-in-law
And me and him just never did get along
Because he wants to make sure
I'm treating his sister right

He got drunk one night
And started beating me up
And I went and got a tire tool out of my truck
And laid him out as cold as a block of ice

It was an attitude adjustment
And it will work every time
An attitude adjustment
I made him see the light

And he says, "I'm his kind of man"
And he comes around with his hat in his hand
It was an attitude adjustment
I cured all his family pride

Now my girlfriend slapped me in the face
I said, "Darlin', that was you're first mistake"
Then she went wild and her eyes turned red
She started breaking everything and sceaming loud
And kickin' me and cussin' me out
And I gave her a little adjustment on the top of the head

It was an attitude adjustment
Now she loves on me all the time
Just an attitude adjustment
She got a whole new frame of mind

She don't nag, and I don't beg
And we get along and like I said
"Just an attitude adjustment
Oh, everythings just fine, well, almost

She called the cops to take me in
And I said, "You're never gonna do it friend"
And they just smiled and said, "Oh, yes we will"
Now a stick to the head
