Sam Cooke – Lawdy Miss Clawdy lyrics

Oh now Lawdy, Lawdy, Lawdy, miss Clawdy
Girl, you sure look good to me
Well, please don't excite me, baby
No, it can't be me

Because I give you all of my money
Duh, but you just won't treat me right
You like to ball in the morning
Don't come back till late at night

I'm gonna tell, tell my mama
Lawd, I swear to God what you're doing to me
I'm gonna tell everybody
That I'm down in misery

Well, now Lawdy, Lawdy, Lawdy, miss Clawdy
Lawd, I swear to God you sure look good to me
You just wheeling and rocking, baby
You're just as fine as you can be

Well, so bye, bye, bye, baby
Girl, I won't be trouble no more
Goodbye, Clawdy, oh darling
Down the road I'll go
