I never had my fortune told
I can't imagine why
The lady tells it like it is
She says I'm bound to cry
But I can be glad no one told me, aah

[Chorus:]
Broken bottles on my doorstep
There's water on the floor
Come on, lady, help me
Keep away, the houndin' law

It's 2 AM and I have no tea
To easy my sorry head
The Lord he must be punishing me
For the crazy things I said
But I can be glad, cuz he's a Christian, aah

[Chorus]

I have a friend, he's always down
I often bring him news
He always feels much better
When I sing to him the blues
But he can be glad, he don't feel so bad
I never had my fortune told
I can't imagine why
The lady tells it like it is
She says I'm bound to cry
But I can be glad no one told me (aah)

[Chorus]
