Turtle Blues Lyrics

Well Im a mean, mean woman
I dont need no one man for no good
Said Im a mean, mean woman
I dont need no one man, for no good
I just treats em like I wants to
I never treats em honey like I should

Well I, I once had a daddy
Said he'd give me everything in sight
Once had a daddy, said he'd give me everything in sight... yes he did
So I said, honey I want the sunshine
And take the stars out of the night

Im not the kind of woman
To make your life the bed of ease
Not the kind of woman
To make your life the bed of ease
But if you, if you just wanna go out drinkin honey
Wont you invite me along please

I guess Im just like a turtle
Hidin underneath its hardened shell... whoa... whoooaaa yeah
Just like a turtle, hidin underneath its hardened shell
But you know Im very well protected
I know this goddamn life to well

WWHHHHOOOOAAAAA...

Dont call me mean, you can call me evil... yeah yeah yeah
Ive been called much worser things that, oh lord dont you know I have... whoooaa
Call me mean or call me evil
Ive been called much worser things oh things around
Yeah but, Im gonna take good care of Janis, yeah!
Honey aint no one gonna dog me down... yeaaah yeaahhh.
