House lady, house lady, playin' here all night long
House lady, house lady, playing here all night long
If you ain't got no whiskey, please bring me a bottle of home brew along

Now, look-a-here, house lady, you don't know what it all about, but when a man gets drunk, you chuck him out your house
House lady, house lady, playing here all day long
If you ain't got no whiskey, please bring me a bottle of home brew along

Tell me 'caine'll, house lady, break the many man's happy homes
Tell me cocaine'll break the many good man's happy homes
When the men get tired of their women, stayin' out all night long

House lady, may I use your telephone?
House lady, use your telephone?
My woman done got drunk, I know she done been here and gone

Yeah, look-a-here, house lady, you know you done treated me wrong
Look-a-here, house lady, you done treated me wrong
Yeah, you mistreat me, house lady, 'cause I bed down on these cotton farms

House lady, something's goin' on wrong
House lady, something's goin' on wrong
You had the wrong party, somebody been here and gone
