My man has done evil,
And I've done evil, too;
Lord, my man has done evil,
And I've done evil, too,
My man has done evil,
And I've done evil, too;
But I'm gonna wait right here,
'N' see what my daddy's gonna do.

I'm standin' here,
Lookin' one thousand miles away,
Oh, I'm standin' here,
Lookin' one thousand miles away,
Standin' here,
Lookin' one thousand miles away,
Was a good papa to me,
That I have to say.

Did he bring me to bed?
Now he's done left town.
Oh, yes, he brought me to bed,
Now he's done left town.
Didn't he bring me to bed,
Lord, now he's done left town,
He stayed with me until he drove me down.

That's why I'm evil;
Here to be evil, too.
Oh, yes, I know I'm evil,
Here to be evil, too.
Lord, I know I'm evil,
And I'm here to be evil, too;
I'm gonna wait right here,
See what my daddy's gonna do.

Aaaaah,
Lord, I'm evil, too.
Oh, I know I'm evil,
Here to be evil, too.
Oh, yes, I'm here,
Here to be evil, too.
Since the world's against me,
I don't know what to do.
