You know, the minutes, they seem like hours
Sometime the hours, they seem like days
I say, the minutes, they seem like hours
Sometime the hours, they seem like days
You know it look like my baby, oughta stop her low-down ways

I wish sometimes I had a whole heaven of my own
Oh, sometime I wish I had me a heaven of my own
I say, I'd give all my women, I say, a long, long happy home

You know, it's a shame to love someone don't love you
Oh, ain't it a shame, oh, to love someone don't love you
Don't look like it'll never be satisfaction
I don't care what in the world you do

I'm goin' away. I ain't never comin' back no more
I say, I'm goin' away, little girl
I'm never comin' back no more
I say, when I leave this time, I say
I'm gonna hang crepe upon your door

I woke up this mornin', just between midnight and day
Oh, got up this mornin', just between midnight and day
You know, I was still huggin' the pillow, oh, where she used to lay

You know, I cried last night, I say, an' I cried the night before
Oh, I cried last night, yeah. I spent all that night before
I think I'll change my way of livin', oh, so I won't have to cry no more

You know, it's a shame, you know, it's a low-down dirty shame
Lord, it's a shame. Ain't that a low-down dirty shame?
I'm so sorry today, baby, oh, that I ever knowed your little ol' name
