You met him at the dance hall, you only saw his charms
You said he really swept you off your feet
Then one night hes drinking and jealousy enraged
He knocked out two of your front teeth

So you came over to hide out at my place
I guess I should have killed him there and then
But you begged me not to, now you say hes changed
And youre gonna go back to him

Dont give me that bull about how its for the children
A man like that could never be a dad
What happens when he kills you? What will they do then?
Sometimes you ought to ask yourself that

Dont go back to him hes a wife beater
Be better off with this potato eater
You says, "Hes changed", dont be a fool
A man like thats no good for you
A man like thats no good for you

Dont go back to him hes a wife beater
Be better off with this potato eater
You says, "Hes changed", dont be a fool
A man like thats no good for you
A man like thats no good for you
A man like thats no good for you
