(instrumental intro)

Well, I got somethin' to tell ya
Baby, you can't do
You can't love me
And some other man, too

'Cause you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
Now, you's a old lady
Babe, an you don't know how you do

Well, I give you my money
You left me cold in hand
You're takin' my money
An give it to your other man

But you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
You don't know exactly how you do

'Well, sing it Maceo'

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now, you promised me a car
You know, an a diamond ring
You bought my clothes
You couldn't understand

'Cause you was a old lady
Know you was a old lady
You was a old lady
You didn't know exactly how do you do

You said, when you look at my face
You love me mo' an mo'
I could love you, too
But I just won't tell you, so

'Cause you's a old lady
'Cause you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
And you don't know exactly how you do

(harmonica & instrumental)

Well, you put out my dress, I bought you
You put off my stockin's, too
You's so funny, I can no wonder
You don't know exactly how to do

'Cause you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
You don't know exactly how you do

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now, an I got some'in to tell ya
Know soon, you 'llow me a-change
I don't want you, find yourself another man

'Cause you's a old lady
'Cause you's a old lady
Know you's a old lady
You don't know exactly how to do.
