I Know What You're Puttin' Down

This song is by B.B. King and appears…

There's a whole lot of talk around town
About the way you're carrying yourself
Whole lot of talk around town, woman
About the way you're carrying yourself
You're jiving everybody in town
But old B., that's me
I know what you've been putting down
You got a rambling mind
Just don't wanna stay at home
You got a rambling mind, woman
You just don't wanna stay at home
You ain't got no job in town
And I know what you've been putting down
Everybody wants you, baby
Everybody but me
I said every
Everybody wants you, woman
Everybody but me
You've been jiving everybody in town, baby

But I know what you've been putting down
You went out late last night
To a dinner show and a dance
You went out late last night, baby
A dinner show and a dance
You must've been a perfect clown
'Cause I know what you've been putting down
Yeah, you came home
Early this morning, woman
With a new hat, a new dress
And a new pair of shoes
Came home early this morning, woman
With a new hat, a new dress
And a new pair of shoes
You ain't been visiting
Your relatives in town
I know what you've been putting down
