Well why do you treat me so mean 
You're the meanest thing I've ever seen 
You won't let a-me hold you tight 
You won't let a-me love you right 
But you know I love you 
So why do you do me like you do 
Say maybe little baby, I'm nervous as a bug 
You got me crazy little baby, you know you tear me up 
You're a mean little mama, ah-ah 
Yeah a mean little mama, ah-ah 
Well I'm down on my knees for you 
Well I'm beggin' and a-pleadin' 
Oh please-please love me too

Say maybe little baby, I'm nervous as a bug 
You got me crazy little baby, you know you tear me up 
You're a mean little mama, ah-ah 
Yeah a mean little mama, ah-ah 
Well I'm down on my knees for you 
Well I'm beggin' and a-pleadin' 
Oh please-please love me too
Well I'm beggin' and a-pleadin' 
Oh please-please love me too
Well I'm beggin' and a-pleadin' 
Oh please-please love me too
