Four nights out of five, the sunrise catches you
Sneakin' in through the back door, sloppy drunk and lookin' half alive
Loaded on gin and excuses, dressed in wrinkles and roses
Livin' with one man, sleepin' at another
Woman, I bet you'd even double cross your own mother

When I first met you, every day had a blue sky
Sweet talk and promises turned out to be a bunch o' lies
Oh, now the dark cloud's comin' in
Keep on sayin' that you love, well I love you
Woman, I bet you'd even double cross your own mother, mmmm

Have you a chance to see how easy life could be, no
Found you in the backwoods where you lived on the politics
One could even say that I'm made to bring for day after day, after day

It would take a natural fool to give up everything you had
Don't you know when you wanna go, your business, oh, so bad
Now I'm gonna play it your way. Go on, use the back way
Don't come around, I'll be gone all day

Whoa, all night's affairs keep on catchin' you
Gonna put you, any wonder, why you keep on lookin' like a fool
Hold out for the Dom Per
Dealin' with me, you don't care about another
Woman, I bet you'd even double cross your mother

Oh, with one man, sleepin' at another
Oh, you'd even double cross your own mother
Sayin' I love you, dealin' with another
Whoa, bet you'd even double cross your own good, sweet mother
