I had the blues last night, I've got 'em again today,
My man told me he was going away.
Trouble, trouble, is all I can see,
Looks like my man has turned his back on me.
Just let me tell you what your friends will do:
Spit in your face and then they'll talk about you.
Me and my girlfriend, went out for a little run,
When she see my man, she told him what I had done.
Bring me a pint of whiskey, and a bottle of beer.
If I get drunk, I sure don't care.
Spoken: Harmonize me, Daddy! Oh, run into me, but don't hurt me!
Take me back, baby; try me one more time;
I'd do everything to satisfy your mind.
Listen, people, to what I'm telling you:
Don't let your left hand know what your right hand do.
