Have you ever been mistreated
Then you've gotta know what I'm talking about
Have you ever been mistreated
Then you gotta know what I'm talking about
Lord, I worked five long years for the same woman
And she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job at a steel mill,
I was chucking steel like a slave
Five long years, but Friday I come home
I said Lord, Lord, I said Lord with all my pay

I said I've been mistreated
Then you gotta know what I'm talking about
Five long years, but Friday I come home
She had the nerve to put me out

You know I finally learnt my lesson
I should've known a long time ago
The next woman that I marry
Gonna have two jobs and
She gonna work, gonna work and bring me the dough

I've been mistreated
Then you gotta know, you got to know, you gotta know what I'm talking about
Five long years the same woman
I said she had the nerve, she had the nerve to put me out
Yeah
