Lyrics



You say that it's over baby, Lord

You say that it's over now

But still you hang around me, come on

Won't you move over


You know that I need a man, honey Lord

You know that I need a man

But when I ask you to you just tell me

That maybe you can


Please don't you do it to me babe, no!

Please don't you do it to me baby

Either take this love I offer

Or just let me be


I ain't quite a ready for walking, no no no no

I ain't quite a ready for walking

And what you gonna do with your life

Life all just dangling?


Oh yeah

Make up your mind, honey

You're playing with me, hey hey hey

Make up your mind, darling

You're playing with me, come on now

Now either be my loving man

I said-a, let me honey, let me be, yeah


You say that it's over, baby, no

You say that it's over now

But still you hang around me, come on

Won't you move over


You know that I need a man, honey, I told you so

You know that I need a man

But when I ask you to you just tell me

That maybe you can


Hey! Please don't you do it to me, babe, no

Please don't you do it to me baby

Either take this love I offer

Honey let me be


I said won't you, won't you let me be

Honey, you're teasing me

Yeah, you're playing with my heart, dear

I believe you're toying with my affections, honey


I can't take it no more baby

And furthermore, I don't intend to

I'm just tired of hanging from the end of a string, honey

You expect me to fight like a goddamned mule

Wah, wah, wah, wah, honey
