Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee – Don't You Lie To Me lyrics

Let's talk it over baby 'fore we start
I heard about the way you overdo your part
Don't you lie to me, please don't you lie to me
Well, it makes me mad and I get evil as a man can be

I'll be with you baby till the cows come home
But don't ever let me catch you getting down wrong
Now don't you lie to me, please don't you lie to me
Well, it makes me mad and I get evil as a man can be, yes, yes

Well, here's a proposition I'll give to you
I'll give you all my jelly, baby, give me yours too
But don't you lie to me, please don't you lie to me
Because it makes me mad, I get evil as a man can be

There's two kinda people, Brownie just can't stand
That's a lyin' woman, double crossing man
Don't you lie to me, please don't you lie to me
Well, it makes me mad and I get evil as a man can be, yeah

Let's talk it over baby 'fore we start
I heard about the way you overdo your part
Please don't lie to me, girl, don't you lie to me
'Cause it makes me mad, I get evil as a man can be

Don't you know I'll be with you baby till the cows come home
But don't ever let Brownie catch you getting down wrong
Don't you lie to me, please don't you lie to me
Because it makes me mad, I get evil as a man can be

Well, there's two kinda people that I just can't stand
That's a lyin' woman, double crossing man
Don't you lie to me, please don't lie to me
Well, it makes me mad, I get evil as a man can be, yes I do now
