"Wife Beater" as written by and John Cooley Matt Lane....
You met him at the dance hall
You only saw his charms
You said he really swept you off your feet
Then one night he's drinking
And jealousy enraged
He knocked out two of your front teeth

So you came over to hide out at my place
I guess I should have killed him there and then
But you begged me not to
Now you say he's changed
And you're gonna go back to him

Don't give me that bull about how it's for the children
A man like that could never be a dad
What happens when he kills you?
What will they do then?
Sometimes you ought to ask yourself that

Don't go back to him he's a wife beater
You'd be better off with this potato eater
You say he's changed, don't be a fool
A man like that's no good for you
A man like that's no good for you
