Spoken "oh, Play that thing boy, I know you're blue... "

Don't want no woman
That run around
Stay out in the street
And like a badfoot clown
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

The stream are yellow
Tossed it black and brown
I gotta black woman
Used to be the woman in town
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

"play it now for me..."

I'm home at morning
Face full of frown
I know about that baby
You been running around
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...

Now look here woman
Give me your right hand
I thought you my woman
You go to your man
You made me love you
And you made me cry

You should remember, that you were born to die...
