It's A Mean Old Man's World

This song is by Dinah Washington and appears on the album Back to the Blues (1963).

Oh when you hear a woman, hear a woman cry
And she cries all night long
You can bet your bottom dollar
That some no good man has a done her wrong
Same thing when you hear a woman shout
You can bet it's some old man she's a shouting about

I say, ain't it a mean old man, mean old man's world
I say, ain't it a mean old man, mean old man's world
Oh, God, it's a mean old man, mean old man's world
It's a mean old man, mean old man's world
I'm gonna ask you one more time girls to sanction
Ain't it a mean old man, mean old man's world

You see, man has held the world in the palm of his hand
It's been that way ever since the world began
I'm so thankful for the day
When man started fooling 'round with a mean dog's way
'Cause you want to be boss
That you understand
'Cause it says woman was made for nothing but man
I ask you, ain't it, I ask you, ain't it, I ask you, ain't it
One more time, ain't it
Ain't it a mean old man, ain't it a mean, ain't it a mean
Lord, it's a mean, mean old man's world
