When a man is down
He's lucky he ain't got no friends at all-a
I said when a man is down
Seem like ain't no friends at all
It seem like ev'rybody
Wants to knock him around like he's an old ball

When it comes to women
He can't have no luck at all, oh
I said, when he comes to women
He can't have no luck at all, no
They want to put a halter on him
Hoo-well, then tie him up like a mule in his stall

When he go around a used to be woman
One you have to give a real good time
When he go around a used to be woman
One you have give a real good time
And again
You know if he had the poor savvy
If she got a dollar she will swear that she ain't got a dime

When he walk in to see his old gang
Which whom he used to drink
When he walk in to see his old gang
Which whom he used to drink
Well, if he ask them for a little taste
Ooo-well, they'll say, 'Oh, that's just what you think'

Now men when you are down
One thing you must do
Yeah, when you are down
One thing you must do
When you get up
Start to remember ev'rybody that mistreated you.
