i should have quit you, long time ago. [x2]
i wouldn’t be here, my children, down on this killin’ floor.
i should have listened, baby, to my second mind [x2]
everytime i go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.
said, people worry i can’t keep you satisfied.
let me tell you baby, you ain’t nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive.
went to sleep last night, worked as hard as i can,
bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man.
i should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago.
i wouldn’t be here with all my troubles, down on this killing floor.
squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg. [x2]
the way you squeeze my lemon, i’m gonna fall right out of bed.
i’m gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.
