Why Are People Like That?
by Bobby Charles

"They'll take your love and your money,
They'll take your sug'r and your honey.
They'll take ya' skinny or fat,
Why are people like that?"

And since it's such a good one, we'll even throw in a bonus verse, from the song's close:

"They'll take your dog and your car,
They'll promise you'll be a star.
They'll break your heart and leave you flat,
Why are people like that?
I don't know why they act like that,
Why are people like that?
Don't be like that..."
