You've been runnin' in the streets again

But I'd never had a hand on you

I've been a better man this year

Than all the men that you've been through

Don't mistake kindness for weakness

'Cause a little girl, only a fool would stay with you

I tried so hard to please you, babe

I've even turned your lies to truth

I said, I tried so hard to please you, baby

I turned your lies to truth

But when you said were my baby

I think I got to ask you for more proof

Don't mistake kindness for weakness

'Cause your chicken has come to roost

I said, don't mistake kindness for weakness, baby

Your chicken done come to roost

I think another man would be a fool

To try to hang around with you

I'm all done Mister Nice Guy

But I ain't playin' around with your rules

If you think that's liquor talkin'

You better try an' get on back to school

So don't mistake kindness for weakness

Woman you done used up your, your last fool
