Lyrics
If you ever been mistreated
Then you know just what I'm talking about
If you ever been mistreated people
Oh, you know just what I'm talking about

I tell you I worked, I worked
Five long years for a woman
And she had the nerve to put me out

You know I got a job at a steel mill
Trucking steel like a slave
Five long years every Friday
I went straight home with all of my pay
If you ever been mistreated people
Then you know just what I'm talking about

I tell you I worked, I worked
Five long years for a woman
And she had the nerve to put me out

But you know, I finally learned a lesson
A long, long time ago
The next woman that I marry
She got to work and bring in the dough
If you ever been mistreated people
Then you know just what I'm talking about

I tell you I worked, I worked
Five long years for a woman
She had the nerve
She had the nerve to put me out
