Give me a break papa, don't throw your sweet mama down
Give me a break papa, don't throw your sweet mama down
You treated me so mean, ain't you tired of doggin' me 'round?

There was a time when nobody wanted you but me
There was a time when nobody wanted you but me
You didn't have no friends, you were poor and hungry as could be

I took you up and fed you, give you a nice home too
I took you up and fed you, give you a nice home too
That's why I can't understand why you treat me dirty like you do

Now I'm sad and lonely, feel mistreated and blue
Now I'm sad and lonely, feel mistreated and blue
Won't you give me a break papa, like I gave you?
