Lonnie Johnson – Men, Get Wise To Yourself lyrics

Workin' man you better wake up, you've been asleep too long
Workin' man you better wake up, you've been asleep too long
Nothin' but these pimps and gigolos, that's goin' 'round breakin' up your home

You go home sometime and there's no supper, your wife is even cross with you
You go home sometime and find no supper, your wife is even cross with you
It's just some no-good rat showin' her the place, where she don't need a man like you

I've got some friends, supposed to be every good man in town
I've got some friends, supposed to be every good man in town
Soon as my back is turned, they're tryin' to tear my playhouse down

Now some of these married women's so dumb, they don't even know the night from dawn
Some of these married women's so dumb, they don't even know the night from dawn
But put them chasin' some other woman's man, they got more brains than anybody in town

Now some of these married women's so wild, their husbands they can't even understand
Some of these married women's so wild, their husbands can't even understand
All they think about, is chasin' some other woman's man

Now a good woman will say sometime, that every man is just the same
A good woman will say sometime, that every man is just the same
But men when we look into it, these home-wreckers is just to blame

Sometime we give a social party, to make 'em happy as we can
Sometime we give a social party, to make 'em happy as we can
There will be some no-good woman, to lead your wife to some no-good man
