'Fer as my eyes could see
'Fer as my eyes could see
Looked like mine, to me
I don't want no woman
Yeah, hey-hey-hey
I don't want no woman

He won't crow 'fore day
He won't crow 'fore day
Won't cackle when she lay
I don't want no woman
Boy, you know this a shame

Comin' the road you're down'
Comin' on the road you're down
Mustache drag the ground
Mama, low
She walk like my baby

I look down the road
Then I couldn't see nothin'
