Oh, no matter what you say, baby
No matter what you do
The way you treat me, baby
You know it's comin' back home to you

And your cryin' won't help you, baby
Oh, cryin' won't help you now
Cryin' won't help you, baby
Because you've been so mean to me

Oh, you must remember baby
No mind no matter where you go
Watch those seeds just scatter
'Coz you gotta reap just what you sow

And your cryin' won't help you, baby
Oh, your cryin' won't help you now
Eh, cryin' won't help you, baby
Because you been so mean to me, yes you have

Oh, before I leave you, woman
Just wanna shake your hand
I'm goin' back to my woman
Gonna let you, get you another man

And your cryin' won't help you, baby
Hey, cryin' won't help you now
Yes, your cryin' won't help you woman
Because you've been so mean to me

You've been mean, you've been mean
You've been mistreatin' me, you've been mean
You know you've been mean to me, baby
You know you've been mean
I'm gonna let you go back, to you're used to be

Can I say it again?
Mean, you've been mean
You've been mistreatin' me woman
You just won't treat me right

Oh, you've been mean
Mean to me, baby
You've been mean
You know you've been so mean to me, woman

You ought to do a little better, baby
You ought to straighten up and fly right
You ought to do a little better, baby
You ought to straighten up and fly right

Yes, you just won't, you just won't
You know you won't, baby
You just won't treat me right, hey

And I talk to this woman again
And I talk to her again
Can I say something else to her?

You've been mean
You've been mean
You've been mean
You've been mean to me, woman

You've been mean
You've been mean
You've been mean to me, baby
You won't treat me right

You've been mean
I say you've been mean
Been mean to me
Hey ya, what you sayin'?
