Sick and tired by the way you do
Good time papa gonna poison you
Sprinkle goofer dust all around your bed
Wake up one of these days, find your own self dead
She said "you shouldn't say that"
I said "What did I say to make you mad this time baby?"
She said "Umm...
I don't know
My oh my oh my"
She said "I don't know but my baby's holding down"

The woman I love she got devil in her jaw
Clothes she's wearing made out of the best of cloth
She can take 'em and wash 'em, put 'em upside a wall
She can throw 'em out a window, pick 'em up a little bit before the fall
Sometimes I think you got your habits on
She said You shouldn't say that
I said "Well, what did I say to piss you off this time baby?"
She said "Umm...
I don't know, my oh my, I don't know
But my baby's holding down"

My momma told me, my momma sat down and cried
She said "you're too young to have as many woman you got"
I looked at my mother dear, didn't even crack a smile
Said "If women kill me I don't mind dying"
The woman I love, I want to wait for last
The woman I love, I have all class
Thought I warned you baby, a long time ago
Better watch your step or I'm going to have to let you go
She said "you shouldn't say that"

I said "Well, baby
You know when you bend over I see every bit of Christmas
And when you bend back I'm looking right into the new year"
She said "Honey, honey, you know I gave up cigarettes for my new year's resolution
But I didn't give up smoking"
I said "Woman, woman, you going to walk a mile for a Camel
Or are you going to make like Mr Chesterfield and satisfy?"
She said, she said "That all depends on what you're packing
Regular or kingsize"
Then she pulled out my Jim Beam, and to her surprise
It was every bit as hard as my Canadian Club
I said "Well now what you got to say baby?"
She said "Umm...
I don't know
My oh my oh my"
She said "I don't know
But my baby's holding down"
