I'm goin' upstairs, and bring down all of my clothes
I'm goin' upstairs, and bring down all of my clothes
Where I go baby, you will never know

My mother dead and gone, my father don't want me around
My mother dead and gone, my father don't want me around
Don't you know baby, I ain't got no place to go

You know, you know, you don't want me no more
(spoken: no you don't)
You know, you know, baby you don't want me no more
You can love babe, with your younger stud, baby
Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho

Got a house on the water, you know I don't need no land
(spoken: Have mercy on me)
Got a house on the water, you know I don't need no land,
When I'm dead and gone, bury me in the deep blue sea
Hmm-mmm, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho
