Louis Allen "Lou" Rawls (December 1, 1933 – January 6, 2006) was an American recording artist, voice actor, songwriter, and record producer. He was known for his smooth vocal style: Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had "the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game". Rawls released more than 60 albums, sold more than 40 million records,[citation needed] appeared as an actor in motion pictures and on television, and voiced-over many cartoons. He was also known for his frequently used expression, "Yeah, buddy!" Rawls was also a three-time Grammy-winner, all for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. more »

Baby, we got to have a little talk
I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log

I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed, called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down and sleep in a hollow log

I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I cannot trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water

Yes, Baby, we got to have a little talk
Said I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log

I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed and they called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log

Because I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I can't trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water
