I got a woman, she's got money 'cumulated,

In de bank, Lawd, Lawd, in de bank.

I got a woman she's pretty but she's too bulldozing,

She won't live long, Lawd, Lawd, she won't live long.

Every pay day, pay day I gits a letter,

Don't you hear them coo-coo birds keep a'hollering,

I got a rainbow wrapped and tied around my shoulder,
