Release information
Release Date: 1967
length: 2:36
I thought I'd like to leave the black side of life for a while
To live alone and have some fun
So I told her to take the kids and go back to her ma
That's how I wanted it to be and I felt satisfied it was over and done
I wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
Down to the factory that's where I spend my pay
Five o'clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
That's how I wanted it to be
Well it didn't take me long to find out just how much I missed her
So I wrote and told her to take the kids and come on back home
Cause I was ready to settle down now
Well you see I just got her letter today
And it seems she's found someone she can depend on
That's how I wanted it to be she ain't coming home no more
I wake up every morning
