Ain't no use, baby
I'm leaving the scene
Ain't no use, baby
You're too doggone mean

Yes, I'm tired of paying dues
Having the blues
Hitting bad news
Ain't no use, baby

Ain't no use, baby
I'm leaving town
Ain't no use, daddy
I'm putting you down

I'm gonna change my name
Things won't be the same
'Cause I'm tired of playing your game
Ain't no use, baby; I tell you, ain't no use

I tried all these years; Lord knows I've tried
Yes, and I cried deep down inside
But, daddy, why complain?
It's all over and you're to blame, yeah, yeah

Ain't no use, baby
Shed them tears
Ain't no use, baby
I cried for years, for too many years

You done had your fun

Ain't no use
Ain't no use
Ain't no use, daddy
Ain't no use
