I Hate a Man Like You

This song is by Jelly Roll Morton and appears on the compilation Alan Lomax: Blues Songbook (2003).

I hate a man like you!
I hate the things you do;
I had a yen for you that was oh, so strong!
Your people warned me we would never get along,
'Cause you're bad right through and don't know right from wrong,
I hate a man like you!

I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
When we got married, I knew it wasn't right
When you stayed away from me on that very first night!
Is that a way to treat a lovin' woman right?
I hate a man like you!

I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
I knew you was wrong for me
When you took a fist and knocked me down on my knee!
Nothing but a divorce can set me free
>From a no-good man like you!

I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
Your big-talkin' man friend came round to my home,
Told me about the places where you used to roam,
I felt in your pocket and found your sweet woman's comb!
I hate a man like you!

I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
Always tellin' me I go with other men,
Smilin' at my face and winkin' at my best friend,
Soon as my back is turned you're like a rooster at a hen!
I hate a man like you!

I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
I know it's your child I'm carryin' in me,
That don't change my feelin's in the slightest degree,
You fill my whole life with misery,
I hate a man like you!
I just can't stand the things you do;
