If You Don't Give Me What I Want

Everyday this week you ask me what I need,
You promise and you promise but you don't show anything;
Now listen once for all,
For this is my last call.

If you don't give me what I want
I'm gonna get it somewhere else;
Pickles to pickles and dills to dills,
If you don't give me, someone will.

You may refuse to give me chops,
But I know other butcher shops,
So, if you don't give me what I want
I'm gonna get it somewhere else!

If you don't give me what I want
I'm gonna get it somewhere else;
It's ashes to ashes and dust to dust,
If you don't give me, someone must!

I'm just a gal what's full of youth,
That's why I'm going to tell the truth.
Cause, if you don't give me what I want
I'm gonna get it somewhere else!

You're worse than that, old, loose and green,
You have no banana all this week;
So, if you don't give me what I want
I'm gonna get it somewhere else!
