Now when I was a down child
I wouldn't take no one's advise
When I was a down child
I wouldn't take no one's advise
But I ain't gon' let no
Woman treat me twice

Baby, so many nights
I've came in an found you gone
Mmm, so many nights
I came in and found you gone
And I couldn't no nothin'
But stand and cry and moan

I love you, baby
But I don't like the way you do
Mmm, I love you
But I don't like the way you do
You are a good little girl
But you just won't be true

Just as sure, baby
As one and one is two
Just as sure, babe
As one and one is two
Someday I'll have money, babe
And be up to delight you

Whenever she smiles
And say she don't love anyone but you
Whenever she smiles
Say she don't love nobody but you
That's alright, buddy
She's probably shuck on you.
