You gon' come home
Find yourself locked out
Box car gon' bump ya
And it ain't no doubt

You've gotta tell me something
Gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?

I got you in dead winter
Snow was fallin' down
Shoes had no bottom
Yo' big feet on the ground

You've gotta tell me something
Gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?

You go to bed here, lately
You tied up yo' hair
I accident'l touch ya
Now you's worser than a bear

You've gotta tell me something
Gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?

(piano & harmonica)

You used to get my money
By ticklin' my chin
Now you've got to thrill me
Like you do other men

You've gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?

You've gotta show me somthin'
Ev'rything you can do
I ev'n got tired
Of spending my money on you

You've gotta tell me something
You better tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?

(piano & harmonica)

When I got home
She had gone to bed
An these are the lovin'
Words she said

You gotta tell me something
You gotta tell me something
You've gotta tell me something
How to get along with you?
