Gee, but it's hard to love someone when that someone don't love you!
I'm so disgusted, heart-broken, too; i've got those down-hearted blues;
Once i was crazy 'bout a man; he mistreated me all the time,
The next man i get has got to promise me to be mine, all mine!

Trouble, trouble, i've had it all my days,
Trouble, trouble, i've had it all my days;
It seems like trouble going to follow me to my grave.

I ain't never loved but three mens in my life;
I ain't never loved but three men in my life:
My father, my brother, the man that wrecked my life.

It may be a week, it may be a month or two,
It may be a week, it may be a month or two,
But the day you quit me, honey, it's comin' home to you.

I got the world in a jug, the stopper's in my hand,
I got the world in a jug, the stopper's in my hand,
I'm gonna hold it until you meet some of my demands.

Gee, but it's hard to love someone
When that someone don't love you;
I'm so disgusted, heart-broken, too
I've got those down-hearted blues.

I was crazy 'bout a gal,
She mistreated me all the time,
Next gal i get, she's got to promise to
Be mine, all mine.

'cause she mistreated me,
And she drove me from her door;
Yes, she mistreated me,
She drove me from her door,
But the good book says,
She'll reap just what she'll sow.

I ain't never loved but three women in all my life,
I never loved but three women in all my life,
That was my mother, my sister, and the gal that wrecked my life.

(heavily scatted)
All the dirt you done to me
Is bound to come back to you.
