Johnnie Taylor – Cheaper To Keep Her lyrics

If you're tied up
You'd better stay tied up
Cause it's cheaper to keep her
This is from T services

It's cheaper to keep her
It's cheaper to keep her

When your little
Girl make you mad
And you get an attitude
And pack your bags

Five little children
That you're leaving behind
Son, you're gonna pay some
Alimony or do some time

That's why
It's cheaper to keep her
Help me say it, y'all
It's cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)

See, when you get through
Staring that judge in the face
You're gonna wanna cuss
The whole human race

That's why
It's cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)
(It's cheaper to keep her)
(It's cheaper, it's cheaper)
(It's cheaper, it's cheaper)
(It's cheaper to keep her)

You didn't pay but two dollars
To bring the little girl home
Now you're about to pay
Two thousand to leave her alone

You see another woman out there
And you wanna make a change
She aint gonna want you cause
You won't have a damn thing

That's why it's cheaper to keep her

Everybody sing along with me
It's cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)

By the time you get through
Looking that judge in the face
You're gonna wanna cuss
The whole human race

That's why
It's cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)
Its cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)
(It's cheaper, it's cheaper)
(It's cheaper, it's cheaper)
(It's cheaper to keep her)

I know you think
The grass is greener
Way over on the other side
When that Judge give
You that dirty look
You may as well put your
Money in momma's pocketbook

That's why it's cheaper to keep her
(It's cheaper to keep her)
Cost too much to leave her alone, yeah
I know it's cheaper to keep her, yeah
(It's cheaper to keep her)

Cause you gonna pay some
Alimony if you leave home
I tell y'all
It's cheaper to keep her
All the fellas know
What I'm talking bout

Don't you know
It's cheaper to stay at home
I gotta tell you
I'll bring you the message tonight

It's cheaper to keep her
Cheaper to keep her
Cheaper to keep her
Cheaper to keep her

She's gonna cause you too much
If you let her go, man
It's cheaper to keep her

You might as well put up
With your little arguments
And fussing and fighting
I am gonna tell you something tonight
I'll tell you, cheaper to keep her

Ain't it, man
Ain't it cheaper to
Keep her, ha yeah

By time you get through
Looking that judge in the face
You'll be lucky if you
Even have a place
