Listen, Babe, don't be no fool,
Play a nice game, try to keep it cool,
'Cause I'm bettin' on you,
I'm bettin' on you.
So, come on, baby,
Tell me what you're gonna do!

Now, tell your woman to don't be so hot,
For I'm the gal that'll crack her on her knot.
For I'm bettin' on you,
Oh, I'm bettin' on you.
So, come on, babe,
Tell me what you're gonna do!

Spoken: Yeah, I'm bettin' on you. Now, man, don't you be no fool. I'm just tryin' to be somebody!

You can laugh and dance and can have your fun,
But when it comes to lovin' don't give away none,
For I'm bettin' on you,
Oh, I'm bettin' on you.
Oh, come on, babe,
Tell me what you're gonna do!

I'm going out and try to make some jack,
But hold everything 'til I come back.
For I'm bettin' on you,
Oh, I'm bettin' on you.
Oh, come on, babe,
Tell me what you're gonna do!

Spoken: Now, swing, you cats! Oh, you're a nasty man! Who wouldn't bet on you?

Baby, I don't want nothing else I see,
But what you got really pleases me,
For I'm bettin' on you,
Oh, I'm bettin' on you.
Oh, come on, babe,
Tell me what you're gonna do!
