Lyrics

You had plenty money 1922
But you let other women make a fool of you

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do ?
get outta here
And get me some money too

Ya sitting there wondering what it's all about
If you ain't got no money they will kick you out

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do ?
get out of here and
get me some money too

I fell for your jiving and I took you in
Now you got to offer is a drink of gin

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do ?
Why don't you get out of here and
Bring me some money too ?
