I can't be happy, mama
For bein' so blue
When ya keep on a-worryin'
The way you do

(When things go wrong)
(So wrong, wit' you)
(It hurts me, too)

That man you love, darlin'
He don't want you 'round
Whyn't ya make love with Tampa, darling?
And let's jump the town

(When things go wrong)
(So wrong, wit' you)
(It hurts me, too)

That man don't love ya, darling
Told Tampa, so
He said it was only jivin' you, darlin'
He said he was lovin' a gal next do'

(When things go wrong)
(So wrong, wit' you)
(It hurts me, too)

'Oh, but it do'

(kazoo & instrumental)

That man'll keep on doggin' you
'Till he goin' make Tampa, mad
An then Tampa goin' get somethin' from him, darlin'
Yo man didn't know he had

(When things go wrong)
(So wrong, wit' you)
Yes (it hurts me, too)

'Play it, boy'

(kazoo & instrumental)

(When things go wrong)
(So wrong, wit' you)
(It hurts me, too).
