Five Long Years
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job in a steel mill, shucking steel like a slave
Five long years, every Friday I come straight back home with all my pay
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out

I finally learned my lesson, should a long time ago
The next woman that I marry, she gonna work and bring me the dough
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve
She had the nerve to put me out
