Now look-a-here, darlin'
You're the only one I love
Now you know how I feel like, baby
In my heart the star above

Oh-oh, baby how can it be?
You's all I got to live for
Now darlin', please don't mistreat me

Now you know you's a good little girl
Do anything I say
I wouldn't mistreat you
Not in nary single day

Oh-oh, baby how can it be?
You's all I got to live for
Baby, please don't mistreat me

Now when I was down, baby
Didn't have a single dime
You'd taken me, baby
Wouldn't pay other men no mind

Oh-oh, baby how can it be?
You's all I got to live for
Darlin', please don't mistreat me

'Yas yas'

(piano & guitar)

'Go get another half-a-pint'
'And a cool can a-beer'

Now you know I love you, baby
Will love you 'till I die
Give you anything, baby
That your heart desires

Oh-oh, babe how can it be?
You's all I got to live for
Darlin', please don't mistreat me

Now you know I love you, baby
I don't see the reason why
Ev'rytime I see you lookin' at another man
I wants to cry

Oh-oh, babe how can it be?
You's all I got to live for
Darlin', please don't mistreat me.
