I say, pretty daddy, make me understand (Lord, man, man, man)
I say, pretty daddy, make me understand (Lord, man, man, man)
Why I'm so crazy about you, I can't love no other man (Lord, man, man, man)

I went to the gypsy, what do you reckon she said? (Come get me man, man, man, man)
I went to the gypsy, what do you reckon she said? (Oh man, man, man)
"Your yellow man will leave you, with a hung down head (mister man, mister man, mister man)

Black man is evil, brownskin man is, too (Lord, man, man, man)
Black man is evil, brownskin man is, too (Lord, man, man, man)
But a yellow man is conceited, and will make a fool out of you (mister man, mister man, mister man)

What in the world, what in the world will I do? (Lord, man, man, man)
What in the world, what in the world will I do? (mister man, man, man, man)
I've sure been mistreated and destructed, too (Lord, man, man, man)

I'm going to get me a gun and satisfy my mind (I'm gettin' a man, man, man, man)
I'm going to get me a gun and satisfy my mind (Oh, man, man, man)
'Cause this yellow man mistreated me, I mean, his last time (Lord, man, man, man)
