Mmmm, mmmmm.
Got up this mornin, feelin sick and bad,
I's thinkin bout the good time, that I once have had.
I said, I got up this mornin, and I said I's feelin so sick and bad,
Yeah, I's just thinkin bout the good times, chil'ren, that I, I once have had.

Mmm, did you ever love, when they didn't love you?
You know there wasn't satisfaction, didn't care what in the world you do.
I said'd you ever love, I said, when they did not love you?
Yeah, didn't look like there'd be satisfaction, didn't care what in this old world you do.

You know, that's a shame, ole dirty shame,

I said, you know that's a shame, I said, it's a low down, ole dirty shame,
Oh, the way you been treatin me, is a low down, ole dirty shame.

You know, love, love is a worried old heart desease,
Look like the very one you be lovin, is so hard to please.
I said, love, I said, is a worried old heart desease,

You know, I go into my room, I sat down and cried,
I didn't have no blues, but I wasn't satisfied.
Yes, I went in my room, and I said, and I sat down and I cried,
Yes, I didn't have no blues, but I just wasn't satisfied.

You know, did you ever get up in the mornin, with the blues three different ways?
You had two mind to leave here, and you didn't have but one such stay.
Did you ever get up in the mornin, w
