Stay out all night long
Now just to keep you off my mind
Stay out all night long
Babe, now-now keep you off my mind
Well now you keep me worried baby
In an alley barefoot all the time

Once was a good girl
Ain't no be that way no mo'
Now don't forget a day, baby
You drove me from yo' do'

Once was a good girl
They don't preach that way no mo'
An don't forget a girl, now little may matter
Babe, now you drove me from yo' do'

How do you feel
When you drive a good man from yo' do'?
How do you feel
When you drive a good man from yo' do'?
Well-well, now you must stop, look an listen
Maybe your best friend, you don't know


When it's hard sometime when you get in bad luck.
Sometimes that a man don't know just what to do.
But I'm 'onna tell you what I'm 'onna do for myself
I'm 'on get me one. 45, now I take care of myself then.

What would you do now, little mellow?
You come walking to my do'
An I will tell you about this
'Please don't come here no mo'

What would you do
If you come walkin' to my do'?
Well then I tell you
'Bye-bye, you not 'onna come here, no mo'

There's something I'll tell you
Don't turn a good man from your do'
Now there's far something I tell you
Don't drive a good man from your do'
Well-well, now you may need his help someday, baby
Hm-well-well, you don't know.
