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
