Ev'rybody's leavin' here
Baby, why don't we go, too?
Ev'rybody's leavin' here
Baby, why don't we go, too?

Now you get yo shoulder purse
And your go 'way bag
Don't make this, make me mad
Ev'rybody's leavin' here
Baby, why don't we leave, too?

You better grab her on time
Talkin' 'bout she's goin' to g'way
I'm 'on give you some money
Now, you done change yo' mind
Ev'rybody's leavin' here
Baby, why don't we go, too?

You know, this old man
Done gotten mighty cross
He got plenty a-money
But he just won't pay all
Ev'rybody's goin' away from home
Why don't we leave now, too?

Yeah, ev'rybody's leavin' here
Why don't we leave here, too?

You know, I work for this man
With a free good-will
Now, if he don't pay me
He gon' have me to kill

Ev'rybody be leavin' here
Why don't we leave here, too?

Now, ev'rybody is leavin' here
Baby, why don't we leave, too?
Ev'rybody is leavin' here
Baby, why don't we leave, too?

Now, here's some facts
You can hang 'em on the wall
I don't care if you don't leave at all

Ev'rybody's goin' away from here
Why don't we leave here -

You know, ev'rybody's leavin' here
Why don't we leave here, too?

Now listen here, woman
I have to tell you what you do
Give back my money
An I'll be through wit' you

Ev'rybody is leavin' here
Skipper James, is long gone, too
I mean, leavin'

Ev'rybody is leavin' here
Why don't we leave here, too?

Spoken:
'Now, you did all you could
To try to make me blue
But I don't, be a fool wit' you!

Ev'rybody is leavin' here
Honey, why'd you leave now, too?

~
