Oh, now lawdy lawdy lawdy, Miss Clawdy,
girl, you sure look good to me.
Well, please dont excite me, baby,
know it cant be me.
Because I give you all my money,
girl, but you just wont treat me right.
You like to bawl in the morning,
dont come back til late at night.
Im gonna tell, tell my mama, lawd, I swear to God
what you been doing to me.
Im gonna tell everybody that Im
down in misery.
Well, now lawdy lawdy lawdy, Miss Clawdy,
lawd, I swear dont you look good to me.
You just wheeling and rockin, baby,
just as fine as you can be.
Well, so bye bye bye, baby,
girl, I wont be trouble no more.
Goodbye, Clawdy, oh darling,
down the road Ill go.
- Lloyd Price
