Shakin' like a leaf on a tree,
That's coming loose from the stem
Shakin' like a leaf on a tree,
Because I'm coming loose from my man!

I'm like a weeping willow,
Weeping on my pillow,
For years and years,
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

Down and down he dragged me,
Like a fiend he nagged me,
For years and years,
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue,
Still, I'm through,
I must tell him good-bye!
Rather than have that man,
I'm gonna lay me down and just die!

So broken-hearted sisters,
Aggravating misters, lend me your ears!
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears

Although I may be blue,
Still, I'm through,
I must tell him good-bye!
Rather than have that man,
I'm gonna lay me down and just die!

So broken-hearted misters,
Aggravating sisters, lend me your ears!
There ain't no sweet man that's worth the salt of my tears
