I've cried both night and day,
You've always had your way;
But now you're leavin,'
You're goin' away to stay.

What grieves my weary mind
I've been so good and kind;
If you had to leave me,
Why did you wait till today?

When you're leavin' me, pretty baby,
Someone else will take your place;
For many years, I've long been waiting,
Just anyplace with so much grace,
Some place like a millionaire,
Lord, I do declare,
With my dainty figure and my baby stare,
So if you're leavin' me, pretty baby,
Someone else will take your place.

I said, you're leavin' me, pretty baby,
Someone else will take your place.
For many years I've long been waiting,
Just anyplace with so much grace,
So if you didn't want me,
Tell me to my face,
'Cause five or six women long to take your place,
If you're dissatisfied and feel like leavin'
Someone else will take your place.

[Spoken] Hit that thing, big boy!

When you're leavin' me, pretty baby,
Someone else will take your place.
For many years I've long been waiting,
Anywhere with so much grace,
So have a drink,
You're in for fun,
The chance is gone, you might be wrong,
If you're dissatisfied and feel like leavin'
Someone else will take your place.
