(John Lee Hooker)

Mean woman, mean woman
Mean woman, wonder why you're so mean
Mean woman, mean woman
Mean woman, why you're so mean
And that's why I'm gonna leave you mean woman
Mean woman, you're so mean

Look-a here now mean woman
I'm afraid to lay down at night mean woman
You sleep with a ice pick in your hand mean woman
I'm afraid to lay down at night with you mean woman
You sleep with a ice pick in your hand all night long
That's why I'm gonna leave you mean woman
Because you fights all in your sleep mean woman
You know you do mean woman
Look-a here now
I work hard every day mean woman
Until the evenin' sun go down
I work for you mean woman every day
Until the evenin' sun go down
I come home in the evenin' time
My supper is never done mean woman
Talkin' 'bout you mean woman

I'm gonna leave you mean woman
I'm even afraid to lay down with you at night mean woman
I'm gonna leave you mean woman
I'm even afraid to lay down with you at night
Because when you go to bed at night mean woman
You got a ice pick in your hand
Look-a here now
Gonna leave you mean woman
Goodbye mean woman
Goodbye mean woman
Goodbye now mean woman
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye mean woman
Goodbye mean woman
I'm so afraid of you mean woman
Goodbye mean woman
