My man don't love me
He treats me so mean
My man don't love me
He treats me so mean
Well he's the lowest man
That I've ever seen

He wears high draped pants
Stripes are really yellow
Well he wears high draped pants
Stripes are really yellow
But when he starts to love me
He's so fine and mellow

Love will make you gamble
And stay out all night long
I say love will make you gamble
And stay out all night long
Love will make you do things
You always thought was wrong

But if you treat me right baby
I'll stay home every day
Said if you treat me right baby
I'll stay home every day
But you're so doggone mean
I just know you're gonna drive me away

But if you treat me right baby
I'll stay home every day
Said if you treat me right baby
I'll stay home every day
But you're so doggone mean
I just know you're gonna drive me away

Love is like a faucet
It turns off and on
I said love is like a faucet
It turns off and on
Just when you think it's on baby
It's turned off and gone
