I say, a woman like you, they don't know when they're gettin' along well.

Honey, I ain't no fool, if I do let you have your way.
Gal, I ain't no fool, if I do let you have your way.
Worm ain't never turned, like I'm gonna turn on you some day.

Mama, I love you, tell the whole round world I do,
Mama, I love you, tell the whole round world I do,
But you better do your shakin' at home, if you want me to get along with you.

Mama, when I got you, baby, you's in an awful fix.
I say, when I got you, you was in an awful fix.

I said, your hard-headed woman, never do live very long.
