Oh, you broke your promise, baby
You don't love, honor or obey
Oh, you won't do nothing I tell you
You go on mistreatin' me everyday
You're early actin' your part, baby
You won't do nothing the preacher says

You don't love me, baby
You don't even wish me well
Honor's just a joke with you, baby
You don't love me, I can tell
Married life with you, baby
I'd rather be living in a cell

Oh, you deceive me, baby
You use me like a child
Oh, you tricked me into loving you, baby
I was loving you all the while
You played with my heart, baby
I said, I was loving you all the while

Songwriters
KING, RILEY B. / BIHARI, SAUL
