Don't walk ahead of that woman like she don't belong to you
Just cause hers got them little skinny legs
You know,that ain't no way to do
You didn't act like that when you had it home behind closed doors
Now you act like you're 'shamed or somethin'
Or you don't want nobody to know she's your's
That's alright, you just walk on baby
And don't you worry about a doggone thing a'tall, huh huh
Because there's some man, somewhere, who'll take you baby, skinny legs and all
Keep on walking baby, huh huh
Show you what I'm talking about
Listen to this
Now, who'll take the woman with the skinny legs?
C'mon somebody please take the lady with the skinny legs
Now, you all know the lady with the skinny legs got to have somebody too, now
Will somebody please take the lady with the skinny legs, please?
Why don't you take her?
You a fool?
I don't want no woman with no skinny legs
Look here,I thought I might give this woman to Clyde
But, no, I know the kinda woman Clyde likes
So Leroy'll take her
You got her
Say, Miss? Right here?
Now why you want to act like that man ain't yours?
Just 'cause he's walkin' with you, with them raggedy clothes
Man just forgot to get his suit out a the cleaners, that's all
Act like that man don't belong to ya
Go on over there and kiss him and hold his hand
Go on, say you ain't gonna do what?
You just walk on mister
And don't you worry about a doggone thing, a'tall, huh, huh
Because there's some woman somewhere who'll take you
Mr. Raggedy clothes and all
Yes there is
Just keep on looking
