It ain't right to do what you do to me
it ain't right now don't be untrue to me
it ain't right, baby farewell

mama I'm talking
It ain't love that you handed out to me
It ain't love now don't stand and shout to me
it ain't love

Now I'd go on but what's the use
you have killed my golden goose
Comes a revolution for me

It ain't right oh no
mama don't do that you know it ain't right
