What is that you're going around here trying so sell?
It'ain't good to eat, you know, it ain't good to smell
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
You can't even give it away

First time I met you had that meat in your hand
Going to give it to some woman's man
Ah, don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
You can't even give it away

Play it, Dennis, tell all about it

You got something you can't sell and you can't give away
You just as well to take it on back where you stay
Ah, don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
You can't even give it away

And don't let me catch you trying to give it to my man
If you do, I'm gonna raise a pain, I doggone can
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
You can't even give it away

Play it Dennis, tell all about it, boy

Look-a here, black gal, why don't you get off the line?
What you trying to sell, it ain't nobody buying
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
Don't nobody want it
You can't even give it away
