GLADYS KNIGHT & THE PIPS


Mr. Welfare Man Lyrics

They just keep on saying I'm a lazy women, don't love my children and I'm mentally unfit I must divorce him, cut all my ties with him cuz his ways they make me say It's a hard sacrifice (hard sacrifice), not having me a loving man Society gave us no choice, tried to silence my voice pushing me on the welfare I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying to prove my equal rights Though I've made some mistakes for goodness sakes, why should they help mess up my life? Ooh, So keep away from me, Mr. Welfare. Did you hear me? Keep away from me, Mr. Welfare

Holding me back, using your tact, to make me live against my will, (hard sacrifice) If that's how it goes child, I don't know, I can't concede my life's for real It's like a private eye for the FBI, just as envious as the Klu Klux Klan Though I'm of pleasant fate it's hard to relate, I'll do the very best I can Ooh, so keep away from me, ooh ooh Mr. Welfare No no, did you hear me? (Keep away from me) don't come near me, stay away, Mr. Welfare They keep on saying I'm a lazy women, don't love my children and I'm mentally unfit I must divorce him, cut all my ties with him cuz his ways they make me say

Oooh, It's a hard sacrifice. No no no no Lordy. Mr. Welfare, Stay away Mr. Welfare I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying to prove my equal rights Though I've made some mistakes for goodness sakes, why should they help mess up my life? Whoo whoo so keep away from me, Ooh ooh Mr. Welfare. Don't you hear me? (Keep away from me) Stay away Mr. Welfare. They keep on saying I'm a lazy women, don't love my children and I'm mentally unfit I must just divorce the man, cut all my ties with him cuz his ways they make me say

Oooooooo, it's a sacrifice (hard sacrifice), I gotta testify. (hard sacrifice) Mr. Welfare, Mr. Welfare (hard sacrifice, hard sacrifice) I'm so tired, I'm so tired (hard sacrifice) I'm so tired, of trying to prove my equal rights Though I've made some mistakes for goodness sakes, why should they help mess up my life? Whoo whooo whoo keep away from me, Mr. Welfare Did you hear me? Keep away from me, Oooh Mr. Welfare They keep saying I'm a lazy women, don't love my children and I'm mentally unfit I must divorce him, cut all my ties with him cuz his ways they make me say It's a hard sacrifice. I just want to testify. Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Um hmmm, keep away from me. Get on, get on, keep away from me, move on, Mr. Welfare Keep away from me
