Yes, I'll work for you, baby
I'll treat you like a baby child
Says, I will work for you, baby
Treat you like a baby child
Well, you're laughin' at me now, mama
You'll be cryin' after while

Says, I'll give you my money
You treat me like a tramp
I've got holes in my shoes
An my feet is getting damp
Oh babe
You oughtn't be so doggone wild
Well, you're laughin' at me now, mama
You'll be cryin' after while

(harmonica & instrumental)

Say, you three times seven
An you knows what you wanna do
Sometime you gonna think about
The good things I used to do
You laughed an laughed
Until you put my clothes in a pile
Well, you're laughin' at me now, mama
You'll be cryin' after awhile

Said I tried so hard
To get along with you
But somehow I couldn't please you
No way I do
You laughed an said
Honey, that I was drivin' you wild
Well, you're laughin' at me now, mama
You'll be cryin' after awhile.
