Backbiters and syndicaters
Standing all around the door
Backbiters and syndicaters
Standing all around the door
An it wished 'bout everyday
Hopin' I'd go way to stay

Almost ruin my happy home
Almost ruin my happy home

I be glad when the day come
You leave these syndicaters alone

I can't understand, little girl
That they don't mean you no good
I can't understand, little girl
That you don't know they don't mean you no good

You'll find these kind of people
In any neighborhood

Backbiters and syndicaters
Can't you see 'em standin' 'round the do'?
Back biters and the syndicaters
Can't you see 'em standin' 'round the do'?

I'm gonna move on down the line
I don't have to be bothered no more
