While the traveling through this big iron world It'll sometimes ask of you
To give advice at certain times
And tell folks what to do

Well, at this time, I'm gonna tell you
What's the wisest plan
When it comes to mixing in with things That you just don't understand, hmm

Let it alone, let it alone If it don't concern you, let it alone Don't go around putting on airs
And meddling in other folks' affairs If you don't know, say so
Mind your own business and let it alone 
Well, you see two people fighting
Them man and woman, say
You think that it's a crime for them
To carry on that way
Well, you think that you could stop that row
But just as you draw nigh
The lady with the poker Strikes the gentleman across the eye

Let it alone, let it alone If it don't concern you, let it alone They know their business, all right, all right They practice that way every night
If you go buttin' in, they'll break your chin
So mind your own business and let it alone 
Well, you say that love's against you
And on your weary way
Well, lying in the gutter A drunken man, we'll say
He's lying in the gutter And you can tell that he's all in
But on his necktie plainly gleams A great big diamond pin

Let it alone, let it alone He's not your pal, so let it alone The man is drunk, it may be true
But the diamond don't belong to you
So shut your eyes and eat some sighs Turn around and beat it and leave it alone
