You had plenty money in nineteen twenty-two
You let other women make a fool of you
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here, get me some money too.

You're sittin' down wonderin' what it's all about 
You ain't got no money that will put you out 
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here, get me some money too.

If you had prepared twenty years ago 
You wouldn't be wanderin' now from door to door
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here, get me some money too.
