My man don't love me
Treats me oh-so mean
My man he don't love me
Treats me awful mean
He's the lowest man
That I've ever seen

He wears high-trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow
He wears high-trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow

But when he starts in to love me
He's so fine and mellow

Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Make you stay out all night long

Love will make you do things
That you know is wrong

But if you treat me right, baby
I'll stay home everyday
Just treat me right, baby
I'll stay home night and day

But you're so mean to me, baby
I know you're gonna drive me away

Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on
Love is just like the faucet
It turns off and on

Sometimes when you think it's on, baby
It has turned off and gone
