When you lose your money, great God, don't lose your mind
When you lose your money, great God, don't lose your mind, hmm hmm
And when you lose your woman, please don't fool with mine

I'm gonna buy me a bulldog, watch my old lady whilst I sleep
I'm gonna buy me a bulldog, watch my old lady when I sleep, hmm hmm
'Cause women these days, get so doggone crooked, till it might make a
'Fore-day creep

Tell you married men, how to keep young wifes at home
Tell you married men, how to keep young wifes at home
Get you a job, roll for the man, and try to carry your labor home

Tell you married women, how to keep your husbands at home
Tell you married women, how to keep your husbands at home, hmm hmm
You oughta take care of that man's labor, and let these single boys alone

You can't watch you wife and your outside women2 too
You can't watch you wife and your outside women too
While you off with your woman, your wife could be at home
Beatin' you doin' it, buddy what you trying to do?

Hmmm hmmm, buddy what you tryin' to do?
