"Back Stabbers" as written by John Lee Hooker and Al Smith....
Oh

(What they do!)
(They smile in your face)

All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

All you fellows who have someone and you really care, yeah, yeah
Then it's all of you fellas who better beware, yeah yeah
Somebody's out to get your lady
A few of your buddies they sure look shady
Blades are long, clenched tight in their fist
Aimin' right back at you
And I don't think they'll miss

(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)

I keep gettin' all these visits from my friends
Yeah, what they doin' to me
They come to my house again and again and again and again, yeah
So are they there to see my woman
Don't even be home but they just keep on comin'
What can I do to get on the right track
I wish they'd take some of these knives off my back

(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
All the time they want to take your place
The back stabbers (back stabbers)
(What they do!)
(They smile in your face)
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes tell lies (Back stabbers)
(They smile in your face)
I don't need, low down, dirty bastards (Back stabbers)
