Have you ever been mistreated? Do you know what I'm talking about?
Have you ever been mistreated? Do you know what I'm talking about?
Well, I worked five long years for my girl, she had the nerve to put me out.

I got a job in a steel mill, shucking steel like a slave.
Five years and every Friday I walkin in, bring home my pay.
Have you ever been mistreated? Do you know what I'm talking about?
Well, I worked five long years for one girl, she had the nerve to put me out.

I finally learned my lesson, should a long time ago.
The next little girl that I marry, she gonna work and bring me some dough.
If you've ever been mistreated, do you know just what I'm talking about?
I worked five long years for one girl, she had the nerve to put me out

I finally learned my lesson, should a long time ago.
The next girl that I marry, she gonna work and bring me some dough.
If you've ever been mistreated, do you know what I'm talking about?
Well I worked five long years for one girl, she had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve to put me out
