Well you know yourself little girl,
You ain't treating your daddy right.
Leave home in the morning,
Ain't back till late at night.

That's nothin' but the devil,
Make you treat me the way you do.
I'm gonna break out like the measles,
I'm gonna be all over you.

Went out early this morning baby,
You dressed up like a queen.
Saying you going to see your sister,
But your sister, you've never seen.

That's nothin' but the devil,
Make you treat me the way you do.
I'm gonna break out like the measles,
Gonna inject you with the Asian flu.

Well you know yourself little girl,
Doing your daddy wrong.
You go out in the evening,
You're never coming home.

It's nothin' but the devil,
Make you treat me the way you do.
Break out like the measles,
Inject you with the Asian flu.

Well you know yourself little girl,
Treating your daddy wrong.
Go in the mornin',
Come back alone.

Nothin' but the devil,
Make you treat me the way you do.
I'm gonna break out like the measles,
I'm gonna be all over you.

I'm gonna break out like the measles,
Gonna be all over you.
