Well don't call my name out your window I'm leavin'
I won't ever turn my head
Don't send your kinfolks to give me no talkin'
I'll be gone like I said
You'd say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in bed and keep your mouth shot till I'm gone
Don't give me that old familiar cussin' moanin' groan understand your man
Tidy your bad mouth and understand your man
You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army
And anything else I leave behind
I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my travelin'
While I'm untanglin' my mind
I ain't gonna repair what I've said anymore
While I'm breathing air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then you'll understand your man
You hear me talkin' honey understand your man
Remember what I tell you understand your man
Understand Your Man Lyrics
