Now, I'm broke an I'm homeless
Ridin', an I'm dirty, too
Broke an I'm hungerin'
Ridin' an I'm dirty, too
Now an if I clean up pretty mama
Can I stay all night wit'ch you?

Now you remember way last fall
Whoa, they puttin' in that old Fridgedaire?
Way last fall they puttin' in that old Fridgedaire, now
Now an that done learned me a lesson
Bout checkin' my own freezer's empty
And the women full a-pain, now

Now, an if I can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do', now
Can't come in
Let me sit down in front of your do', now
Now, an I'll leave so early in the mo'nin
That your real man will never know

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now just let me be yo' little dog
Babe, until your big dog come in
Now just let me be yo' little dog
Babe, until your big dog come in
Now when yo' big dog comes
I want you to tell him what yo' little dog, done done, now

'Yeah John, come on in'

(harmonica, piano & instrumental to end)
