Well, now, lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, Miss Clawdy
Girl, you sure look good to me
Well, please don't excite me baby
Know it can't be me

Because I gave you all my money
Girl, but you just won't treat me right
You like to ball in the mornin'
Don't come back till late at night

I'm gonna tell, tell my mama
Lord, I swear to god, what you been doing to me
I'm gonna tell everybody
That I'm down in misery

Well, now, lawdy, lawdy, lawdy, Miss Clawdy
Lord, I swear to god you look good to me
You just a-wheelin' and rockin', baby
Just as fine as you can be

Well, so bye, bye-bye, baby
Girl, I won't be comin' no more
Good-bye, cruel little darlin'
Down the road I go
