I used to be bad but I don't have to be bad no more
Yeah, I used to be bad but I don't have to be bad no more
Well ain't no doubt about it, people it's something you can't ignore

Well, I ain't good looking people, you know I've been up on a shelf
Yes, I know I ain't good looking and I've been put up on the shelf
But I got a sweet disposition I like to enjoy myself

I used to be bad but I don't have to be bad no more
Yeah, I used to be bad but I don't have to be bad no more
You know I learned my lesson a long, long time ago

Well, no matter what you say no matter what you do
You got one life to live it's gonna come back home to you
I used to be bad but I don't have to be bad no more
You know I learned my lesson a long, long time ago

The good Lord made this world and everything that's in it
The way I see it, baby you got to love it to the limit
Oh yes, now people it's something you can't ignore
Yes I used to be bad but I ain't gonna be bad no more

Well, the way you treat me darling made me understand
Never quit you baby I'm gonna love you to the end
Yeah, I used to be bad but I ain't gonna be bad no more
Yes, I learned my lesson a long, long time ago

Yes, I learned my lesson a long, long time ago
Yes, I learned my lesson you're gonna reap just what you sow

You'd be right with Steve Miller.  He co-wrote it with Paul.

 
Whew. I thought I was going crazy. I knew it sounded like SM.

This is a very good RnR album. Never gets much play.  Thanks RP.

My first hearing ever. Thanks RP. 

but, if I was asked to i.d. the voice without a visual, I'd say

what? who? gtfoot. 
This reminds me of Rick Derringer's comical tongue-in-cheek "a-capella" version of "Walkin' The Dog"....really really reminds me of it..wondering if Rick is on this track? Somebody was listening to somebody at sometime.....

How much do I pay to make sure this doesn't happen again? Steve sings here like he's sleepwalking. 
Hmm, a McCartney song/album I'm not familiar with.
Not bad!
Even if I didn't know who it was jamming on this, I'd have to say it sure does ROCK with a driving, bluesy, sizzling Old School style!
Paul doing Steve Miller ?
I forgot about this one....{#Bananajam}
