Lyrics

(Bo Diddley)

Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been buyin' another woman clothes, but you've been talkin' to someone else
I called your mama, 'bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama, 'bout three or four nights ago
Your mama said, "Son, don't call my daughter no more"
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been buyin' another woman clothes, but you've been takin' money from someone else
Come on back home, baby; try my love one more time
Come on back home, baby; try my love one more time
You've been gone away so long, I'm just about to lose my mind
