Sophisticated mama, don't turn your nose up at me
Sophisticated mama, don't turn your nose up at me
Don't try to be ritzy, you ain't what you seem to be

You think you knows all answers, ain't got nothing to learn
You think you knows all answers, ain't got nothing to learn
You don't want no man, if he ain't got money to burn

I'm going to read you mama, tell you what I think of you
I'm going to read you mama, tell you what I think of you
You will do anything, that any other woman will do

You can't drink nothing, unless it's champagne or wine
You can't drink nothing, unless it's champagne or wine
But you would drink beer and like it, if you were the woman of mine

You like high‑price dresses, and mmm steaks every day
You like high‑price dresses, and mmm steaks every day
If you belongs to me, you would eat hot dogs any time I say

I'm a barrelhouse man, ain't got no money to give you
I'm a barrelhouse man, ain't got no money to give you
Can't give you nothing but loving, and you'll have to make that do
