My man, he don't love me, he treats me, oh so mean
My man, he don't love me, he treats me, oh so mean
He's the meanest man that I've ever see

My baby wears high peg pants, stripes are really yellow
Baby wears high peg pants, stripes are really yellow
When he starts into love me, he's so fine and mellow

Love will make you drink and gamble, make you stay out all night long
Love will make you drink and gamble, make you stay out all night long
Love will make you do things that you know is wrong

Do right baby if you stay home every day
I'll do right baby if you stay home every day
You're so mean and evil I know you're gonna drive me away

Why did he leave me? Why did he have to go?
Why did he leave me? Why did he have to go?
Went off and left me, baby I loved him so

I'll be a good wife to you if it means anything to you
I'll stay home every night and I'll love you and kiss you every night
And one of these days if you're good to me, honey
One of these days if God is good to me I'll bring you a little bunny

Come back to me baby try me one more time
'Cause without your loving, I swear I'm gonna lose my mind, yeah alright
