Well, I asks you, woman
Where did you stay last night?
You said, it was none a-my business
Just isn't treatin' me right'

You got to step back
Back a little too, fast
You got to get back
I know you can't last
You got to step back, baby
So I can get a long wit' you, now

(harmonica)

Now, an tell me, baby
What do you tryin' to do?
You tryin' to love me
Some other man, too

You got to step back, woman
A little too, fast
I know you can't last
You got to step back, woman
So I can get along wit' you, now

(harmonica)

Well, now look-a-here woman
I got somethin' that you can't do
You can't love me
An some other man, too

You got to step back, woman
A little too, fast
You got to get back
I know you can't last
You got to tell me, baby
So I can get along wit' you, now

(harmonica)

Well now, look-a-here, baby
Ain't gonna be your dog, no mo'
You try to fool me, baby
Like you did a long time ago

You got to step back, woman
A little too, fast
You got to get back
I know you can't last
You got to step back, woman
So I can get along wit' you

(harmonica)

Now baby, ain't but the one thing
Really give me the blues
When I ain't got no bottom
On my last pair-a-shoes

You got to step back, woman
A little too, fast
You got to get back
I know you can't last
Now you got to tell me, baby
So I can get along wit' you
