I don't want no woman
Playin' the races all the time
I don't want no woman
Playin' the races all the time

You know she ain't good for nothin'
She's too broke most all the time

Dreamed her number last night, yes, yes, yes
And my baby, she did the same
Dreamed her number last night
And my baby did the same

My baby got up this mornin'
And she played it just the same
Yes, man

I come home every Friday
Throws my check down on the bed
I come home every Friday
Throw my check down on the bed

My baby takes all a my money
Put it down on five, six and two, yes, yes

I don't want no woman
Play the races all the time
