Well, I had a gal
Said her name was Suzie James
Like to hear
About the same old things

You got to fix things right
You got to fix things right
Steady hot, mama
You know you got to fix things right

Now, soon this mo'nin
When the clock struck one
Me an my good gal
We havin' our fun

Little bit later, now
When the clock struck two
One mo' minute
Say, your papa ain't though

You got to keep it just right
You got to keep things right
Hey, red hot, mama
You know you got to fix things right

Now, listen here, baby
Now, when the clock struck three
Hold on one minute
You killin' po' me

It's over in the mo'nin
When the clock stuck fo'
Now, now, baby
Let's try it once mo'

You got to fix things right
You have to keep things right
Hey, red hot, mama
You know you got to fix things right
(piano & harmonica)

Now, now, baby
Now, when the clock struck six
Me an my good girl
We had the thing fixed

But over in the daytime
When the clock struck nine
Got tired of doin'
The same thing all the time

You got to keep things right
I have to keep the things right
Red hot, mama
You sho' got to keep things right

Now, listen here, baby
Now, when the clock struck twelve
I know you done got to think
About the way you smell

Ain't no use in you
Just to keep on raisin' sand
Got to fix, mama
'Bout a-where way you stand

And have to keep things right
And have to keep things right
Oh, red hot mama
Ain't got fixed things right
(piano & harmonica)

Now, now, baby
What makes you treat me so unkind?
Keep me worried, bothered
All the time

See me comin'
Hoist your window, high
When you see me leavin'
Hang yo' head an cry

So, fix the thing right
Gotta fix things right
You're a red hot mama
You know I got to keep things tight

Now, your only time, baby
Short time worry me
Can't go a long time
Let yo' papa, be

Now, now, baby
Who yo man may be?
If there's any chance, mama
Little po' me

Now, I've had your fix right
I had the fix right
Now, red hot mama
The girl got to fix things right.

(piano & harmonica to end)
