Woman, I don't wanna a soul
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home

Oh, I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

I don't want your sister coming by
Because the little girl she talk too much
If she wanna come either visit us
Tell her to meet us Sunday down at the church

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

If your mother wanna visit us
Tell her I get home 'bout the break a day
And that's too late that visit anybody, baby
So tell her to please stay away

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for anybody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

Now if you feel a little sick, baby
And you know you're home all alone
I don't want the doctor at my house, baby
You just suffer till I get home

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for nobody, baby
Yeah, when you're home all alone
